Painted or Treated Wood

In garbage

Painted or treated wood can go in the garbage:

  • Break wood down so it fits in your bin with the lid closed.
  • Make sure it doesn’t exceed the weight limits printed on your bin.

Transfer station

Bring lumber and wood boards to city transfer stations. {{proj[1].rate_text}}
