Yes, you can recycle your old fence. Not everyone is aware of how easy fence recycling can be, though plenty of people do it. There are many options for what to do with old fence posts and panels, and if you have the time, there are some creative ways of doing the work.

It is important to recycle as much as possible today. We can throw away a lot of good material that may find another use if disposed of properly. At Fence Supply Online we often get asked by clients about what to do with their old fence. Can they recycle it, or does it have to go to the refuse dump? We asked our team of experts to help us with the question, and they came up with a few suggestions for wood fence recycling. The best ones made it to a list that we put into this post.

Included on the list of suggestions for fence recycling are:

  • Take a wood fence to the recycle center
  • A metal fence is valuable
  • Try reusing the old fence

Let’s take a closer look at each point on the list.

Take a wood fence to the recycle center

There is always a use for an old wood fence. Your local recycling center or transfer station will take the old material if you do not have a use for it.

If using a contractor, ask them to dispose of the old fence properly.

A wood fence can have many uses when you are finished with it – some of it returns as outdoor furniture.

A metal fence is valuable

Iron, steel, and aluminum will always hold their value. If you are finished with the material as a fence it will still fetch money and have a use for many years.

Some companies will pay you to take away an old fence if you are lucky. You can also arrange for it to go to a recycling center where they will recycle it.

You can also reuse the old fence, so do not be in too much of a hurry to get rid of it.

Try reusing the old fence

Try recycling the old fence around your own property.

An old boundary fence may look good around the deck area. You can attach old vinyl panels to the wall to train vines and other plants to grow up and around the home.

Wood is very versatile. Use it to build garden boxes or raised beds in the yard.
