Revised Hazardous Wood Categories

The Environmental Agency has updated the categories of waste wood typically used in construction and demolition activities, which means any waste wood items from pre 2007 structures or waste classed as Grade D wood waste will need to be segregated and marked as hazardous waste.

More information can be accessed here:  The Wood Recyclers Association (WRA) website: https://woodrecyclers.org/.

Companies should be aware, that timber waste receivers will likely reject these recategorised materials, as well as timber telegraph poles and railway sleepers unless they have been tested and proved non-hazardous.
