How do I recycle or properly dispose of...


Wood can be recycled very easily and made into a variety of different products from particle board to mulch to fuel for co-generation plants.  Unfortunately, there aren't many places where you can take wood to be recycled for free.  Those that do take wood products for free often demand that loads are clean and that they contain only certain types of wood products that have not been painted or finished in any way whatsoever.  Below is a list of locations that recycle wood for free or for a fee.  Typically this fee is below the cost of taking this material to landfill facilities.

No Pressure Treated Lumber or Railroad Ties are Included in this Category!!

Below is a list of local recyclers for the San Joaquin County area.  This list is provided for informational purposes only.  We suggest that you call the location for more information and details prior to delivering materials.
