We recently completed a home remodel which included new baseboards and door trim. I have a lot of little pieces (translation: unusable for reuse) of stained & urethane-treated wood trim that I would like to recycle. Anyplace in the Indianapolis or Bloomington area that takes this type of material?
Sorry, Mindy. Treated wood isn’t really good for much, unless it is reusable. It sounds like these pieces aren’t really cut out for a Habitat ReStore or an architectural salvage store. You could always get creative and make an upcycled picture frame or edging for your garden.
