It is Time to change our Environmental direction–

So we can achieve Sustainability in recycling all Wood waste–

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.

 

 

The AWWRA Membership, Partnership and Stakeholder(s) are setting Environmental standards by providing operative Climate Change Leadership Solutions


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 Supply Chain Markets for Recycled Wood

 

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 Supply chain sorts are based on logistics, feasibility from an economic or technical point of strategy and the developing reuse market demands.

 

The following literature describes the basic three emerging closed loop Supply chain Wood recycling market sorts.

 

Wood recycling reuse strategies.

 

Recovered / Processed Wood Sort

Recover & Process the used Wood into a Wood Sort: (to be Ground, Shredded or Screened and processed for the reuse as a new commodity)

Supply Chain Reuses: 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

 

Remanufactured Wood Sort

Remanufacture the used Wood into a Wood Sort: (to be Sawmilled, Kilned, Planed or Milled for reuse as a new commodity)

Supply Chain Reuses: 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

 

Reclaimed / Barn Wood Sort

Reclaim the used Wood into a Barn Wood Sort (to be Sorted and readied for the reuse as a new commodity)

Supply Chain Reuses: 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
