Wood enters the recycling stream as dimensional lumber, pallets, treated wood, trees and stumps, and from other sources. Certain wood materials can be recovered for reuse, recycled into composite panels like particle board, or shredded for use as mulch, fill, and cover.

Wood Reuse and Recycling Directory
The American and Canadian Wood Councils have partnered with Build Reuse to develop a North American directory outlining reuse and recycling options for wood and wood products. The online resource lists companies within a searchable geographic area that have agreed to provide reuse and recycling options for wood and wood-based products, for both those looking to provide such products as well as those looking to obtain wood products for reuse. The website can be found at: ReuseWood.org.
