Wood Drop Collection Site


Buckeye Wood Energy LLC collects tree trimmings, chipped or shredded wood and clean pallets at our facility in Trumbull County, OH located near Cortland (map) at the intersection of Ohio Routes 5 and 11.  We accept wood from tree trimming operations year round.  We do not accept treated or painted wood.

Waste Wood Drop Off Collection Programs are beneficial to communities because they reduce the amount of waste deposited in landfills.  Waste Wood Accounts for about 17% of urban waste landfilled.  It is expensive for communities to dispose of waste wood at landfills, especially when there are environmentally friendly alternatives.  Buckeye Wood Energy recycles waste wood into useful thermal output.  Energy that heats and cools buildings or is used in other industrial applications.

Community Waste Wood Recycling


We assist communities in establishing waste wood recycling programs to reduce landfill costs and promote responsible environmental management of our country's resources.

Waste Wood can be recycled.  Buckeye Wood Energy assists local governments in establishing Waste Wood Recycling Programs.  There are several options available.  The waste wood can be picked up weekly in a curbside program, or residents can deliver the waste wood to a central collection point.  Or,  communities can schedule quarterly or semi-annual pick-ups.

Recycling is Cost-Effective.  Many communities believe they do not generate enough wood to make recycling worthwhile.  Waste wood accounts for 17% of the materials deposited at urban landfills.  How much garbage does your community generate a year, how much does it cost of dispose of that waste and how would you like to cut your disposal expense by up to 17%?
