Recycling Alternative works with Urban Wood Recyclers, the primary wood recycler in the Lower Mainland, for responsible recycling of wood products, such as old pallets we collect.



Trashbusting Factoid

In Metro Vancouver, compostable wood waste makes up approximately 12% of all waste taken to our regional landfills.  Compostable wood means that it is clean and untreated, such as tree branches and pallets. Non-compostable wood waste refers to wood that has a chemical treatment or preservative that makes it unsuitable for compost, such as furniture, laminate or pressure treated lumber.
