Reduces the load on landfills and incinerators: Landfill sites have a tremendous negative effect on the global environment and the people living near a landfill site. If wood is dumped in the landfills instead of being recycled, it would only contribute to the harmful effects and would make no difference as it otherwise would have.
Assists in preserving and conserving timber, an essential natural resource: The more the wood is recycled instead of dumped, the lesser tree would have to be felled. Even though timber is considered sustainable, it takes years to replant and replenish wood to meet the high levels of demand. Recycling wood eliminates this concern and helps preserve this natural resource for a long time.
Reduces the carbon footprint created by commercial and industrial activities: As trees take in Co2 and emit oxygen, preserving trees and wood is essential to limit the effects of global warming and high amounts of carbon emission. Using recycled wood in the manufacturing processes calls for energy saving.
Reduces the labour costs of procuring the wood and transportation: Compared to recycling, dumping the wood waste in landfills can prove quite costly as their maintenance cost and tipping fees have exponentially increased with time. Choosing to recycle wood can eliminate the cost of transporting them to a landfill site.
