Wood recycling gains popularity

Date Posted: 2009-03-12

Progress has old wooden homes being torn down to make way for modern buildings, but a new trend has emerged to salvage the priceless, aged wood.

Old homes that once were trashed, smashed and bulldozed are now being painstakingly taken apart in order to preserve and reuse the old wood. Private companies are recognizing the demand for the often antique hardwoods in other applications.

A century-old home taken down a few days ago in Yaese Town brought a vendor who took it apart piece-by-piece to preserve the Inumaki hardwood that originally came from the Shuri area. “This nice old wood can be used to make Sanshin poles,” says the Ginowan City vendor. “It will be very expensive wood.”

The company president says “this type of private houses are old, but have very high value, and they are becoming cultural treasures. I want to recycle this wood and make this the business foundation of my company.
