Dimensional Wood Waste/Lumber, Painted or Treated

(Last Updated: 8/23/2018)

Painted or treated wood waste (dimensional lumber, pallets, or packing crates) can be recycled if it is free of varnish, strapping, lead paint, enamel paint, shrink wrap, shipping lables, and hardware (nails OK).

Loads with engineered wood (plywood, oriented strand board, particle board, engineered decking), laminated wood, or paneling cannot be recycled and should be disposed as garbage.

See instructions for creosote-treated wood or clean/untreated lumber.

Disposal
Recycling is cheaper than disposal.
 
If you have a load that mixes recyclable wood and non-recyclable wood, you will be charged the higher garbage rate. Bring these loads separately to save money.
 
Wood must be cut into sections 8 feet in length or smaller. Large amounts (over 3 cubic yards) must be taken to Olympic View Transfer Station. Customers must unload waste themselves.
