Default Where to take a bunch of scrap lumber?

I have a bunch of interior doors, door frames and old plywood I want to throw out. Am I better cutting it all up and putting a little by the curb each week, or is there a place to take it in the Sterling Heights area?

If you really want easy and don't mind spending about $125 get one of those waste management bags. I used one for my bathroom remodel and it worked out great.

I was looking in to those but did not know the pickup price. Maybe I'll hang on to the lumber for now since I am gutting the bathroom this winter. I could get a bag for everything then.

Pick up was around $100. Any home project I do from now on I will get one since it takes me forever to complete it and you can hold onto it as long as you want.

There is that sterling heights recycling place on 15mile between scheoner and dodge park iirc. They may take wood.
