Timber recycling – a viable solution for many businesses


Waster offers low cost and accessible recycling in Australia solutions for many commodities such as paper and cardboard, plastic recycling, commingled recycling, organic waste solutions etc.


Timber recycling is a good solution for many businesses for the following reasons:


It reduces the weight of general waste bins. General waste collections are priced on the weight of the bin i.e. usually the heavier the bin, the more the collection service costs. Of course, timber is very heavy and dense and hence will push up the weight and related costs for your general waste bin service.


Can significantly boost your overall recycling performance – again, as timber is dense and heavy, your recycling performance as a business can significantly jump


Timber recycling can be significantly cheaper than general waste services – for example, in NSW, timber recycling can be estimated at half the price of an equivalent general waste service.


As per wikipedia:  “recycling timber has become popular due to its image as an environmentally friendly product. Common belief among consumers is that by purchasing recycled wood, the demand for “green timber” will fall and ultimately benefit the environment. Greenpeace also view recycled timber as an environmentally friendly product, citing it as the most preferable timber source on their website. The arrival of recycled timber as a construction product has been important in both raising industry and consumer awareness towards deforestation and promoting timber mills to adopt more environmentally friendly practices.”
