Recondition & Reuse
Why do we Recondition and Recycle pallets?
Pallets are widely used for packaging and shipping by companies for a variety of products. All too often, they end up being thrown away after a single use.
In today’s economy, businesses and institutions reuse or recycle their pallets because it saves them money on waste disposal costs. Recycling also helps conserve valuable resources, reduces pollution from production of new materials.
Pallet recycling is a great way to help our environment by keeping them from the landfill. They can be reconditioned to extend their life span as much as possible.
How do they get recycled?
Once in our pallet processing facility, the different materials are separated, managed, and recycled according to their highest end-use and marketability. Depending on their material type, pallets can be broken down and recycled alongside wood, plastic, paper or metal. The most common type, wooden pallets, are usually considered clean wood and can be dismantled for scrap wood, chipped, composted, turned into yard mulch, or used as boiler fuel.
Pallets that are repaired and reconditioned are put into our used pallets inventory and make available for purchase; therefore extending their life span as long as possible and keeping them from the landfill.
