Timber (Untreated)

Timber bins generally come in bulk bin sizes which are used for the removal of larger timber pieces. Separating your timber from your general waste has many benefits. It reduces the bulky waste from your general waste bin, diverts the waste from landfill and creates the potential for reuse. This saves on cost as well as the environment. Recycled timber often gets a second life in construction or furniture making or it can be mulched to make new timber products, animal bedding or even bio filters. The timber to be recycled needs to be untreated. Painted, varnished, stained or treated timber can contain harmful chemicals and can't be recycled.
