Wood Chip and Fines

Wood Chip products are made from untreated and unpainted end-of-life timber pallets, packaging and off-cuts. Produced at EMRC's Hazelmere Resource Recovery Park, it is a high quality recycled product that reduces reliance on virgin wood chip, as well as relieving pressure on landfill. Wood Chip is made to strict standards and is consistent, soft, insulating, easily spread, easy to maintain and has low dust content.

How can I use Wood Chip?

Wood Chip is an economical and environmentally-friendly alternative to virgin wood chip.

Animal Bedding

EMRC's Wood Chip was initially designed for use in the intensive poultry industry, but demand for wood chip for animal bedding has now expanded to other industries. EMRC worked closely with the WA Broiler Growers Association to develop a fit-for-purpose wood chip product. It provides a soft and insulating surface for chickens, which absorbs manure and moisture, inhibiting ammonia and the spread of disease. EMRC's recycled Wood Chip is also used in cattle stockyards as animal bedding.


EMRC's recycled Wood Chip makes an economical and long-lasting mulch for large scale landscaping projects. As the wood chips are well seasoned, they last for a long period of time and are extremely effective at supressing weeds and providing erosion protection. The Wood Chips will grey down over time to blend in well with the landscape of choice.

Other uses

There are many other uses for recycled wood chips, including particle board manufacturing, biofuel and compost additive.

EMRC is eager to collaborate with other industries looking to develop a recycled Wood Chip product to their specifications, so please contact us to see if we can help.

Is Wood Chip free from contamination?

Strict processing and quality controls are in place at the Hazelmere Resource Recovery Park to ensure that market specifications are consistently met and contamination is minimised. Ingression of wind-blown material is managed, specific screening equipment is used, and timber generators are educated to minimise contamination in incoming timber. Processed Wood Chip is stored away from incoming timber to avoid cross-contamination.

Our custom-designed and highly-advanced processing facility allows us to meet the strict requirements of each specific market. Wood Chip is regularly tested by an independent third party for organic and inorganic contaminants. That means you don't have to worry about any of the contamination or consistency issues you may have had with recycled wood chip in the past.
