Are you completing the circle via Recover?

Over 900,000 tonnes! That's how much capacity our plants have to convert wood waste into new panels. How and from where do we collect this type of wood? From locations such as container parks, demolition companies, the packaging industry, etc. But also from you: our customer! Together we set up and maintain a circular system. Fill in the form at the end of the page if you want to help us build a sustainable future.


Your end-of-life wood, packaging materials or production downtime also contributes to the circular economy


Want to give your wood waste an extra lease of life? Sure you can! In 2023, we recovered more than 26,000 tonnes of wood waste from customers through the take-back programme Recover. We want to increase this volume substantially in the coming years. Through take-back programmes, we help you better manage and sort your wood waste. This ensures that your wood waste is not burned, but given an extra life as a new product. The basic requirement? From 50 tonnes of wood waste/year, you can participate in Recover.

Wood Loop in The Netherlands

The Netherlands wants to be fully circular by 2050. By working together as a chain, wood recycling can be organized on a larger scale, easier and more efficiently.
That’s why Koninklijke CBM, Baars & Bloemhoff and Unilin Panels launched 'Wood Loop', a unique chain initiative that should enable all SMEs to recycle MDF and chipboard easily and affordably.
Because Wood Loop works with 1 m³ crates, any joiner or wood processor, from small to large, can participate.

Like waste disposal companies, Wood Loop collects wood remnants to make new boards. The residual wood from Wood Loop participants results in significantly lower CO2 emissions because the recycling cycle is organised in a smarter way: the waste wood follows the shortest path from processor to producer.
