Creosote is the name for various wood preservatives from the high-temperature treatment of wood and coal tar. The use of creosote and creosote-containing products is illegal in New York State (NYS). Households and businesses that still have creosote or creosote-containing products must dispose of them properly.
Environmental Conservation Law, Article 27, Title 25: Phase-Out of Creosote
The NYS Phase-Out of Creosote Law (Article 27, Title 25) bans the manufacturing, sale, and use of creosote and products containing creosote in NYS. Wood treated with creosote that was already in use on January 1, 2008, may continue to be used as designated. In NYS, creosote and any wood or other product treated with or containing creosote can only be disposed of in a landfill permitted by the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to accept this waste or combusted in a municipal waste combustion facility licensed by DEC to combust this waste. Disposal or burning of creosote or any wood or other product treated with or containing creosote outside these permitted landfills and combustion facilities is prohibited.
