The benefits of recycling materials such as paper and plastics are well-known. But have you ever considered recycling wood? We don’t often consider the impact leftover wood has on our society, but there are many factors affected by the improper removal of wood.
- Environment- Wood recycling is essential to the preservation of our forests. Instead of chopping down additional trees, the unused lumber can be repurposed to build a new park bench or coffee table. More trees mean slower climate change and cleaner air. In other words, their preservation is our preservation.
- Landfills- Wood recycling can also prevent wood from piling up in landfills. It’s wasteful to have so much wood lying around without a clear purpose. Once this wood is removed, it frees up space that could be used for a variety of other uses, including growing more trees.
- Safety- The careless handling of wood can create a hazardous work environment. Wood can cause splinters if workers are not properly equipped with protective gear, such as gloves and goggles. Meanwhile, children or animals could wander into the scraps of wood and hurt themselves by mistake. Wood recycling alleviates these mishaps before they happen.
