Is Wood Recycling Possible in Milwaukie?
For most people, wood is something that seems too useful to be relegated to the landfill with everything else. And at Allwood Recyclers, we would have to agree. Because even if it’s not usable to some folks, wood and yard debris still hold amazing value well beyond their original utility.
Allwood Recyclers Inc. is a local wood and yard debris recycling facility that has been serving Milwaukie and the surrounding areas since 1995. We take pride in providing an easy way for home and landowners to get rid of unused wood without simply throwing it away.
At Allwood, we take anything that can be used for landscape supply, whether by us, or someone else. A few of the regular items we accept include:
- Wood Chips
- Particle Board
- Clean Christmas Trees
- Cedar Shingles
- Pine Needles
- Yard or Garden Trimmings
- Bark Dust
- Grass and Hay
Rocks and Concrete:
- Other rocks (Except for red)
What Happens to Wood After it Gets Recycled?
For most of the wood we receive, our goal is to fully recycle it into reusable compost mixtures for renewable energy production through biofuel. Wood or lumber that can be reclaimed for purposes other than compost may also be set aside and made available for customers.
Like wood, reusable yard clippings will also be processed for use in a rich, organic compost. Other materials such as bark, concrete items, or rock will be sorted and primarily repurposed for use in local landscaping.
