Resourceful

Our why

We believe in being resourceful and making the most of what we've been given. All our products are made from natural wood residues that would otherwise end up in dump sites or landfills. 

With our experience, expertise, and deep understanding of the repurposing process, we’re able to divert natural waste from landfills and give natural residues another purpose.

Why choose Azwood

We provide residue clean-up services to the forestry industry and use the residues we collect to manufacture natural products. We also partner with other local industries to repurpose natural waste, wood residues, sawdust, manures, fungi, trade by-products, and green waste.
