Generation And Recovery Of Solid Wood Waste In The U.S.
About 130 million tons of C&D debris were generated in 2010, including about 36.4 million tons of wood. Demolition accounted for about 80 percent of the wood debris.

While only a small amount of wood processing residues are available for recovery, the urban wood waste stream has nearly 29 million tons to tap.
