I recently purchased a home in Wisconsin, USA, and in the process of making repairs and upgrades I find I'm generating a fair amount of scrap lumber each month. I keep whatever I think I'll be able to re-use in the future, but there's still some left over.
I've been putting some of it in my regular garbage bin (which is sent to a landfill) but I'm wondering if there's a better alternative?
Here are some more details about the pieces:
- A mixture of pine, plywood, and fiber board
- Some pieces are painted with what could potentially be lead paint, given the age of the house
- Some pieces have nails or screws -- I could remove these if necessary
