Trex® eco-friendly composite decks are made from an innovative blend of 95% recycled wood and plastic. That means almost the entire product is made of recycled material!

And they’ve been this way for more than 20 years, long before green was a buzzword. That matters to us. And we're pretty sure it matters to you, too. Because in the end, all of us want to look out on our decks and know that we’ve done our part.

Recycling is a beautiful thing
As one of the largest plastic recyclers in the USA, Trex saves 400 million pounds of plastic and wood from landfills each year. So in addition to contributing to a healthier environment, Trex eco-friendly decks also contribute to your good karma. Learn about Trex and the LEED Green Building Rating System™ (PDF)
Recycled Wood
Reclaimed wood that would otherwise end up in a landfill finds its way into Trex high-performance composite decks. By using reclaimed sawdust, we never have to cut down a tree to make our products. Ever.
Recycled Plastic
The recycled wood in our decks is combined with recycled plastic from a variety of sources ranging from the overwrap on paper towels to dry cleaner bags, sandwich bags, newspaper sleeves, and grocery and shopping bags. Here’s an interesting fact: the average 500-square foot composite Trex deck contains 140,000 recycled plastic bags! That makes us one of the largest plastic bag recyclers in the U.S.
Fully Eco-Friendly
Trex’s proprietary, eco-friendly processing method eliminates the use of smoke stacks . Also, our factory runoff and refuse are recycled back into the manufacturing line. Our trailers even run on vegetable-based oil hydraulics.

Other benefits of Trex composites

Trex decks will not rot, warp, peel, or be devoured by termites. Period. In fact, while all Trex decking and railing products offer a 25-Year Limited Residential Warranty against material defects, the company's high-performance lines add an additional layer of coverage with our 25-Year Limited Residential Fade and Stain Warranty.
