Check to see that your wood is recyclable. Wood recycling centers will accept soft and hard woods, boxes and packing cases, plywood, pallets, chipboard, laminates, fiberboard and hardboard.
Recycling centers will not accept wood containing copper, chrome or arsenate.
Decide whether your wood products might be reusable by someone else. This includes plywood and lumber.
If it is, contact the Atlanta Community Toolbank by phone at 404-880-0054 or drop your wood off at 55 Ormand Street. FCS Urban Ministries at 750 Glenwood Street will also accept materials donations; they can be reached at 404-627-4304.
Otherwise, proceed to Step 3.
Contact a wood recycling center and ask about pickup options, or deliver the wood to the center yourself. Georgia Pallet Operations has a wood recycling facility that can be visited at 30337-51014281 Best Road, or called at 404-768-1157.
AAA Recycling at 520 Wharton Circle SW also accepts wood recycling and can be reached by calling 404-696-2101.
Take your wood to the recycling center, or neatly pile it in an accessible location and wait for pickup.
