      In the last three decades, extensive research has been conducted on reusing and recycling decommissioned preservative-treated wood. These studies include residual preservative retention in decommissioned utility poles (Arsenault ; Ruddick et al. ; Nurmi ; Osborne and Fox ; Cooper et al. , ; Lahiry ; Piao et al. a), interference of preservatives . include preservative treated shown in italics should not be included in the final specification.

    The utility poles are then kiln dried and treated with CCA-C to meet the American Wood Protection Association Standards (AWPA) C-4 and UC- 4A, 4B and 4C, Latest Edition. We then go the extra mile and take all of our utility poles and process them further in accordance with AWPA standard A74 to meet Best Management Practices (BMP's) for the CCA. Wood fumigants are highly-effective internal treatments designed to protect wood utility poles from strength loss caused by internal decay and insect attack.
