Guide to Plastic Lumber - GreenBizupon its health hazards and recycling impacts. We rate the environmental preferability of 38 plastic lumber products manufactured by 30 companies based on three criteria: 1). Materials used. 2). recycled content. 3). Potential recyclability. No determination is made as to whether plastic lumber is on the whole either more or less preferable to other materials with which it competes such as naturally rot-resistant wood, pressure-treated wood, steel, aluminum, or concrete. Rather, this ...
