Koppers is Strengthening our Utility Infrastructure

Recovery & Reuse

Our business was built on the idea of repurposing end-of-life treated wood materials for new uses and value—a foundation of circularity that continues to drive us today.

We provide sustainable, safe, cost-effective, and easy-to-implement end-of-life solutions for treated lumber.

By serving our customers throughout the entire lifecycle of a pole or crosstie—from delivery and usage to maintenance, recovery, and repurposing—we help our customers achieve significant savings in new pole and end-of-life material pricing through efficient logistics services.
