Painted Wood
Absolutely no lead-based paints will be accepted; therefore we cannot accept painted wood from demolition activities or unidentified commercial sources.

New pre-primed wood products are acceptable, but must be clearly identifiable as such.

Painted wood from documented commercial sources may be accepted based on review of an MSDS sheet from the paint supplier.
