It is Time to change our Environmental direction–

So we can achieve Sustainability in recycling all Wood waste–

 

Clean Wood waste material category
Treated Wood waste material category

 

 

 

The Alberta Waste Wood Recycling Association [AWWRA] is a registered non-profit association established in 2012, promoting Sustainable closed loop Wood waste recycling best practises, strategic comprehensive Bioeconomy industry support and reuse initiatives through our associations industry resource tools.

 
The AWWRA is providing advice and guidance in the development of the Wood waste recycling, Bioeconomy industry.

 

Empowering; the exchange of information between members and stakeholders

Representing; the Alberta Wood waste recycling industry and its best interests to the Government and other regulatory bodies

Advocating; positive membership support, representation to the industry in legislative, rule-making venues that impact the growth of the Alberta Wood waste recycling, Bioeconomy industry

Promoting; the growth of the recycling of used Wood waste in every manner possible that benefits AWWRA membership and industry


AWWRA Support

The AWWRA provides positive business support and representation to the environmental participants, members, partnerships and stakeholder(s) of the Alberta Wood waste recycling industry through an array of venues that will impact the growth of Alberta’s respective Wood waste recycling industry.

 

Now it’s up to us to close the gap between rhetoric and reality. We’re ready. Are you?

 

It is the intention of the Alberta Wood Waste Recycling Association to Educate and Promote economically, environmentally sound closed loop Wood waste recycling reuse solutions through Education, new Technologies and Voluntary Wood waste recycling Stewardship to all stakeholder(s) interested in diverting from landfill our renewable resource: Wood waste.

 
AWWRA Climate Change Leadership Solutions Strategy

In working with the Alberta Waste Wood Recycling Association, we are encouraging Provincial & Federal Governments through education to discover, develop and deploy innovative technologies, financial funding and strategies to work with the stakeholder(s) from the commercial, residential, agriculture, forestry and waste management sectors to help meet the Province of Alberta’s Climate Change Strategy goals!

 
We are diverting our renewable resource - Wood waste material from Landfill and non-essential Burning

 

The simplistic, most cost efficient, environmentally sound solution of recycling Wood waste is based on the Wood waste recycling facilitators’ firstly diverting our renewable resource “Wood waste” – from Landfill and Non-Essential Burning. Once the Wood waste has been diverted then begins the renewable Life-cycle process of Collection, Sorting the Wood waste into one of the three Reuse categories;

 

The new Wood recycling sorts WoodReProSort | WoodRemanSort | WoodBarnSort
 

As we develop the Alberta Wood waste recycling industry it is imperative that we firstly divert the reusable Wood waste – from Landfill and stop the non-essential Burning our renewable resource; Wood.

The success of implementing the recycled Wood waste sorts is based on logistics, feasibility from an economic or technical point of strategy and the developing reuse market demands.

 

“Wood recycling for profit –

The new Green business frontier

 

As acknowledged the AWWRA provides guidance and endorsement so that the membership, partnerships and stakeholder(s) are enabled to implement their respective environmental action of recycling of Wood waste into economic, social and environmentally sound business practise.

The AWWRA Wood waste recycling facilitators are implementing one, two or all three new Wood waste recycling sorts – WoodReSorts and develop their respective outsource supply chain reuse markets.

 

These established Europeon, Provincial, Canadian and American WoodReSorts can prove to be economically worthwhile if developed applied and managed properly.

 

The three main Alberta Wood Waste Recycling industry recycled Wood reuse sorts are;  

 

WoodReProSort | WoodRemanSort | WoodBarnSort

 

The Reprosort is an acronym for the Recovered/Processed Wood Sort ~

The recovered Wood waste is sorted into a WoodReProSortmaterial, product and is Ground, Shredded or Screened and readied for the reuse market as a new commodity.

The reuse applications range from and include; Daily landfill cover / Drilling waste absorbent / Soil amendment, Conditioner Regenerative product / Water conservation material / Base material for provisional roads, parks, trails and pathways Specialized landscaping product / Composting / Equine animal bedding and Waste-to- Energy fuel

 

The Remansort is an acronym for the Remanufactured Wood Sort ~

The recovered Wood is sorted into a WoodRemanSort material, product is either Sawmilled, Kilned, Planed or Milled and readied for the reuse market as a new commodity.

The reuse applications range from and include; New Building products / Dimensional lumber / Beams / Posts / Planking / Siding Decking / Steps / Wood Mantels & Corbels / Bar & Countertops / Doors & Windows / Tables & Chairs / Cabinets / Wood Mirrors & Shelves Wood flooring / Wall board / Roofing / Fireplace Mantle  

 

The Barnsort is an acronym for the reclaimed, Barn Wood Sort ~

The recovered Wood is sorted into a BarnSort material and readied for the reuse market as a new commodity.

The reuse applications range from and include; Used Building products / Dimensional lumber / Beams / Joists / Trusses, Posts Planking / Siding / Ceiling / Roof sheathing Wall boards Decking / Steps / Wood Mantels & Corbels / Bar & Countertops / Doors & Windows Tables & Chairs / Cabinets / Wood Mirrors & Shelves / Wood Flooring & Sub-flooring Fixtures and Miscellaneous

 

 

Alberta Industry Supply & Demand for recycle Wood

 

The supply & demand for recycled Wood products has been steadily increasing over the past four years since inception of the Alberta Wood Waste Recycling Association!

 

The challenge is for you to take the lead in supporting and developing your Wood waste recycling, Bioeconomy industry sector by engaging, organizing potential stakeholders and investors working to remove existing Wood recycling barriers, and demonstrating through education and the utility of using recycled Wood in the three main recycled Wood supply chain Reuse industry categories.
