How to recycle wood waste

Wood is an extremely precious and finite resource that must be protected. It is also one of the most valuable recyclable materials because it can be transformed into a wide variety of secondary products such as mulch, wood pellets, compost additive, soil conditioner, animal bedding and feedstock for engineered woods.

Recycling wood - nearly 16 millions tons of wood is thrown out each year - only 14% is reclaimed. But many states have set goals to increase their recycling rates to 75%.
