How to Responsibly Dispose of Fiberboard

Fiberboard is a common material used in construction and furniture making. It is made from wood fibers that are compressed and bonded together with a resin or adhesive. Fiberboard can be recycled, but there are a few things to consider when disposing of it.

If the fiberboard is clean and free from any contaminants, it can be recycled in the same way as cardboard. Simply flatten the fiberboard and place it in your recycling bin. However, if the fiberboard is painted, stained, or treated with any chemicals, it may not be accepted for recycling and should be disposed of as construction and demolition waste.

If the fiberboard is in good condition and can be reused, consider donating it to a local organization or charity that accepts building materials. This can help reduce waste and benefit the community.

It's important to note that fiberboard should not be burned or incinerated, as it can release harmful chemicals into the air.
