Treated Wood and Wood Pallets



Beginning April 16, 2021, OC Waste & Recycling received permitting to allow Treated Wood Waste (TWW) to be disposed at our Irvine site for a period of six months. For more information regarding TWW disposal, click here. Treated Wood Waste is any type of wood that is sprayed with chemical preservatives to protect its integrity from insects or decay. Treated wood can usually be identified by its light brown, to dark green tint and includes fence posts, sill plates, landscape timbers, pilings, guardrails, decking, patio wood/posts, railroad ties, and more.
