All sawdust and construction debris should be cleaned up and disposed of after construction.

Do not use treated wood under circumstances where the preservative may become a component of food or animal feed. Examples of such sites would be cutting boards, counter tops, animal bedding, and structures or containers for storing animal feed or human food.

Do not use treated wood for construction of those portions of beehives which may come into contact with honey.


Dispose of treated wood off-cuts and sawdust by ordinary trash collection.

Treated wood should not be burned in open fires or in stoves, fireplaces, or residential boilers. Treated wood from commercial or industrial use (e.g., construction sites) may be burned only in commercial or industrial incinerators or boilers in accordance with State and Federal regulations.
