This company collects wood residues such as spruce, poplar, balsam fir (Abies balsamea), pine and bark from local logging and sawmill operations. Limited to a 350 km radius due to cost of transport, the company transported 85,000 tonnes of residues in 2002, in addition to loads delivered directly to buyers. The materials, which sometimes include grade B particleboards and some municipal arboricultural waste, are mechanically chipped/mulched and then sold to manufacturers who generate steam for medium density fiberboard and chipboard production, to pulp and paper mills as hogfuel (bark), and to local landscapers as garden mulches.

As such, paper wastes are one example of a landfill product with enormous consumer products and bioenergy potential. Nearly 5 Mt of used paper products are disposed of annually in Canada, representing 35% (by weight) of solid wastes in municipal landfills (Canadian Council of Forest Ministers 1997). Disposal of these products in landfill sites results in carbon being returned to the atmosphere through decomposition. 24 Bioproducts from Canada’s Forests According to the David Suzuki Foundation (2004), methane emissions from Canadian landfills produce the same amount of GHG as 5 million cars, and are expected to increase by 19% by 2010.
