Trex® Sustainable Decking Products

Today, consumers are increasingly choosing more sustainable products. Since our inception, Trex products have been designed with sustainability in mind. Using innovative recycling methods, we transform recycled plastic film and reclaimed wood into beautiful outdoor decking products. Learn more about how we source the recycled and reclaimed raw materials for our products below.

Achieving Circularity

Our composite decking is made primarily from a blend of 95% recycled and reclaimed raw materials, providing long-lasting quality and style.


Thirty-plus years of experience have helped us hone our supply chain and proprietary process for converting discarded plastic film and wood into high value, long-lasting decking. The result? A high-performance, eco-friendly selection of unique products, available at scale.

Upcycling Materials

Recycled Plastic

We partner with corporations, retail stores, consumers and others to proactively capture unwanted plastic film and upcycle it into beautiful Trex decking. In 2023, we diverted more than 320 million pounds of plastic film slated for landfill.

Reclaimed timber

To produce our award-winning decking, we also use reclaimed timber, including wood dust, off cuttings, pallets and more. We partner with timber product manufacturers to capture their waste. In 2023, we used more than 516 million pounds of reclaimed timber fibre in our products.

Product Circularity

We make it a priority to build durability and materials efficiency into our products and processes. This includes ongoing R&D to study new sources of used plastic film and waste timber.
