There is more and more manufacturing happening every day and because of this there are new types of waste/by-products being generated daily. EP WASTE MANAGEMENT is looking for new ways to recycle these products daily and can now proudly say that solid wood waste can be recycled through getting in contact with EP WASTE MANAGEMENT.
The end uses of wood recovered from construction and demolition activities are sometimes limited. This is because the wood is commingled with other materials and contaminants or is in such poor condition that the cost of processing and cleaning limits the economic viability of processing and reusing the material. Wood waste generated at residential and commercial wood frame construction sites offers a greater potential for reuse because of the ease of separating the wood during various stages of construction. Cut-offs and scraps generated during framing and trimming constitute a relatively clean and homogeneous waste stream that can make an excellent feedstock for engineered wood production. This type of wood waste represents a highly desirable form of recyclable material that processors are eager to obtain.
EP WASTE MANAGEMENT is even offering a rebate for solid wood waste.
Why Recycle Wood Waste?
There are a number of important reasons to recycle solid wood waste; the following discussion summarizes the primary reasons.
Landfill Cost and Space Savings
Landfill costs can be avoided by recycling wood wastes, generating savings that, along with revenue from the sale of recovered wood waste materials, can be credited toward the processing costs associated with recovery.
The environmental benefits attributable to wood waste utilization depend on the method of recovery. The major direct environmental benefits appear to be most noteworthy and quantifiable when wood waste is used to displace coal for electricity or steam generation. It can also be chipped or shredded to be used as a composting bulk agent, sewage sludge bulking medium, and animal bedding.
Natural Resource Benefits
Recovering and recycling wood from the waste stream result in the conservation of natural resources. For example, more than 1.9 billion pallets are put into circulation each year, 50% of these pallets are designed for a single-use trip. Recovered wood can be used to manufacturer value-added products such as medium density fiberboard and particleboard. Through recycling solid wood less is needed from Timber mills.
South Africa uses a large amount of wood. Accordingly, the amount of wood waste produced is also large. In the last decade, interest has been growing in utilizing this resource and millions of tons of solid wood waste are available for recycling into a myriad of products. Though the production of landscaping mulch and fuel are the dominant markets for recycled wood waste, reuse of solid lumber for structural uses and for re-manufacturing into value-added products is also growing.
