Customer Scotframe Timber Engineering Ltd was recently the first to make a delivery of Sterling OSB offcuts to Norbord’s Inverness plant, instead of landfilling the waste.

Norbord, which started the initiative to ensure no wood is wasted by the industry, is using the returned fibre for fuel in its rotary dryers.

“We are delighted that Scotframe was the first of our timber frame manufacturing customers to return this material for recycling and has made a long term commitment to our green initiative,” said Norbord’s wood fibre procurement manager Douglas Lamont.
