Timber needs to be taken to your local recycling centre or transfer station. 

Wood is direct from the garden and includes sticks, branches and prunings. This can all go into the green lidded organics bin to become compost.

Timber is processed wood. It contains chemicals and adhesives that sadly contaminate compost. Small timber pieces can go into the red lidded general waste bin but larger items need to be taken to your local recycle centre or transfer station to be recycled.
