Dispose of wood A1-A3


What is wood A1-A3?

Private or commercial, small or large quantities: With us you will find the right container for your wood waste. Wood waste is classified into several categories. Here is a brief summary of the categories A1 to A3:

  • Category A1: A1 wood is untreated or natural wood and has only been mechanically processed, if at all. A1 wood can be recycled very well. Example: disposable pallets.

  • Category A2: A2 wood includes residual wood that has been glued, coated, painted, varnished or otherwise treated. However, A2 wood must not have been treated with wood preservatives. This wood can also be recycled directly. Ex: Floorboards, chipboard.

  • Category A3: A3 wood is waste wood that has been treated with halogen-organic compounds in the coating. However, A3 wood has not been treated with wood preservatives. A3 wood can be further processed or recycled both thermally and materially. Example: Kitchen worktops, wooden furniture without any adhesions.

The correct disposal and subsequent recycling is of great importance for the processing industry, as wood is not waste but a valuable raw material.

General notes

Filling: Containers may be filled to a maximum of the loading edge. The contents of the container must not exceed the side walls. At this point, independent raising of the side walls is not permitted. No liquid waste may be filled into the container.

Filling weight: Containers whose filling weights exceed a weight of 10 tons may not be transported. Please pay attention to the filling conditions and maximum weights. Overfilled containers cannot be transported safely and must be unloaded by the customer.

Access: Make sure that the vehicle has sufficient space and that access is possible without any problems. The minimum clearance height is 4 metres and the clearance width 3.50 metres. Since the container is lowered or unrolled to the rear, up to 15 metres of space is required. To facilitate manoeuvring, an additional length of 10 to 15 metres should be kept free.

Installation: A suitable surface must be available, i.e. it should be paved, level and stable. Sensitive ground is not suitable to be driven over by a truck, as it can otherwise be damaged by the heavy weight. Furthermore, a container cannot be lifted over fences/walls. Only a maximum height of 30cm can be exceeded.

Permission: If you want to place the container in a public space, you are responsible for the general duty of road safety. Even if we support you in this and help you apply for the necessary official placement permits, you are still responsible.
