Wood and Mixed Wood Recycling in San Jose, CA

Bay Area Scavenger and Recycling in San Jose, CA accepts clean and mixed wood loads for recycling six days a week. While wood is a natural substance, it cannot be recycled with regular curbside pickup recycling, which is designated for paper, plastics, and glass. Wood can be repurposed and recycled into building materials and chipped for mulch and landscaping use. Pressure-treated or stained wood is not eligible for recycling and is designated as trash. Contact us to learn more about pricing.

Clean Wood Debris

If you have loads of clean wood that have been separated from other materials at a job site, you can bring them to our facility for recycling. If the wood is from a demolition or building job, small amounts of metal such as nails or hinges in the wood are permissible, but they cannot contain any plastic. Excessive contamination on wood will be designated as trash, and we do not accept treated or stained wood. Acceptable clean wood includes:

  • Lumber
  • Pallets
  • Fencing
  • Plywood

Mixed Wood Debris

If you have a load of wood you’d like to recycle that is not 100% fully clean or doesn’t meet the requirements above, we do accept this as “mixed wood.” This category generally includes a minimal amount of additional products such as painted lumber, plastic, or metal. Large amounts of wood contaminated by hazardous materials, such as creosote, will not be accepted for mixed wood recycling and will be designated as trash.

Bring Us Your Wood for Proper Recycling

Discarded wood can be repurposed into several useful items. It’s essential to do our part to keep it out of landfills and curbside recycling. Bay Area Scavenger and Recycling in San Jose, CA offers convenient and affordable recycling of clean and mixed wood products discarded from building or demolition projects.
