C-wood is treated wood, such as impregnated wood fences or sleepers. This wood contains biocides, heavy metals or tar and hydrocarbons (sleepers) that are harmful to people and the environment. Impregnated wood has been soaked in chemicals and is, therefore, the least environmentally friendly.
You can hand in this wood at the waste recycling point.
What happens to the waste?
C-wood may only be used as fuel for the purpose of energy generation. Material reuse is not permitted because the wood contains toxic substances.
