DescriptionThe awareness and concerns regarding the environmental impacts and disposal of chromated copper arsenate (CCA) treated wood products are increasing. Several investigators predict that the quantities of CCA-treated lumber will increase significantly in the upcoming decades. Additionally, with the number of landfills decreasing, landfill tipping fees increasing, and limitations being placed on the types of materials which can be landfilled, it is vital that treated wood currently directed to landfills be recycled.
