Disposing Wooden Pallets

Pallets are great structures for transporting the goods in our warehouses, but over time you’ll find your space filled with more pallets than not. The worst way to dispose of pallets is by throwing them away. This will cost businesses money and is a waste of materials as pallets are recyclable. Below you’ll find information on the benefits of recycling pallets and where you should recycle.

Why Should You Recycle Pallets?

Money

Recycling pallets is beneficial for not only your business but other business as well. When pallets that are still in good shape are recycled, they are put back in the supply chain and will provide more service.

Space

Recycling pallets will open up more space in your warehouse. Opening up space for your warehouse makes it easier for productivity and preventing injuries. It’s dangerous to surround your workspace with clutter.

Time

Recycling unwanted pallets will also save time. Workers will spend less time trying to maneuver the forklifts around the unused pallets.

Where Should You Recycle?

Manufacturers

Frequently manufacturers are happy to have the used pallets come back. Most manufacturers have return programs to promote recycling. Through the programs, you can recycle your old pallet and receive credit for new pallets. Another option is to have your old pallets refurbished and sold back to you for a smaller fee than you originally bought your pallets for.

Recycling Companies

There are recycling companies that will take your old pallets. Depending on the condition, the companies will compensate you for recycling. This return on investment will be useful for the next time you purchase pallets.

When you find your warehouse/business is cluttered with wooden pallets, look for manufacturers or recycling companies in your area. This benefits not only your company and the disposal places but the environment. Trashing the wooden pallets encourages pollution and is a waste of natural resources.
