Waste Wood Definitions

The Wood Recyclers Association provides the following Waste Wood Definitions for the industry. 

Grade A

‘Clean’ recycled waste wood mainly from packaging waste, scrap pallets, packing cases and cable drums, and process off-cuts from the manufacture of untreated products. With the exception of wood waste which may contain halogenated organic compounds or heavy metals as a result of treatment with wood preservatives or coatings. Ecovision’s understanding is that ‘single use’ packaging and pallet manufactured within the UK are unlikely to have been subject to any form of treatment.

Grade B

May contain Grade A wood together with other waste wood sourced from construction, demolition activities and the manufacture of furniture from solid wood.

Grade C

May contain Grade A wood together with other waste wood sourced from construction, demolition activities and the manufacture of furniture from solid wood.

Grade D

Is hazardous waste consisting of wood which has had copper, chrome, arsenic (CCA) treatment or creosote applied. It can only be disposed of in compliant incineration facilities or hazardous waste landfill.
