What we accept and what we do not accept:
Rainier Wood Recyclers accepts all wood wastes that are suitable for recycling, including both urban wood wastes and landclearing wood wastes. This page provides a brief description of acceptable wood wastes and contaminant limitations. An account representative will be happy to visit your location to review your wood waste stream and answer any specific questions about our recycling services.
Clean urban wood waste includes materials generated from commercial and industrial activities. Mixed urban wood waste from construction, renovation and demolition activities, or wood streams that contain non-wood residuals will have an additional charge. Examples of urban wood waste materials include:
Solid Wood Materials
Pallets & Crates
Mouldings & Millwork
Mill trim ends
Engineered Wood Products
Oriented strand board (OSB)
Medium density fibreboard (MDF)
Other similar products
Material Not Accepted
Treated wood is not accepted. Any loads with treated wood exceeding incidental trace levels will be rejected, including the common pressure treated or Outdoor Wood products. Treated wood includes creosote, CCA, pentachlorophenol and similar treatments.
Absolutely no lead-based paints will be accepted; therefore we cannot accept painted wood from demolition activities or unidentified commercial sources.
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.
Blue-Painted Pallet Scrap
Pre-Primed Mill work Contamination
Wood shall not include more than incidental levels of plastics, cardboard, metals, pipes, tar paper, cement fiber composites or similar non-wood materials.
Absolutely no asbestos or hazardous materials!
Any loads with such materials will be rejected or handled for proper remediation and disposal at the expense of the supplier.
