Hi Fools,

These are great questions and thank you so much for raising them.

This is also a concern for us and that is why we raised it in the "areas for improvement" section of the article.

To answer your questions, there is not currently a way to recycle and re-purpose a Trex composite decking board. The hopeful news is that the decks last well over 25 years (many have a 50 year warranty) so maybe there will be a solution in time.

Most decking landfill is still solid fill rather than incineration. But Trex products can be incinerated if so desired by the landfill authority.

And Trex recently made this exclusive list, which was nice to see: https://www.greenbuildermedia.com/green-builders-2019-eco-le...

Thanks again for the great discussion and thought around a very important topic.

Fool on!
