Are pallets environmentally friendly?
23 Mar 2023
Wooden pallets are a great option if you want to be environmentally conscious. The wooden pallets we manufacture from our Southampton facility use carefully sourced wood from sustainable woodlands. Easy to recycle, wooden pallets make an excellent choice for anyone who wants to transport their goods; safely, securely and environmentally.
With our selection of pallets, you can choose to have new or used wooden pallets. The used wooden pallets we supply have been refurbished by our team to ensure they meet our high standards. Additionally, as they are reused, the used pallets are a great resource for avoiding the need for any trees to be cut down.
Are you interested in our wooden pallets? Eco-friendly and sustainable, you can order your choice of pallets by using our online secure checkout system. Choose how many units you require, and our team will have them delivered right to your door.
Pallet Collection Service
At Associated Pallets, we offer the best pallet collection service across the UK. To avoid unnecessary waste, we have ensured that we are able to collect unwanted and unused wooden pallets across the UK. This helps the environment by preventing pallets from ending up in landfills and avoids the use of timber trees being cut down.
How the collection service works are by you getting in touch with us. We’ll collect a minimum of 50 pallets from your facility. In some cases, depending on the condition of the pallets, we will pay you for the unused pallets. When collected, our team will take the pallets back to our Southampton facility.
Once at the facility, the pallets will be assessed for refurbishment. After being refurbished by our team of experts, the pallets can be made to meet ISPM 15 standards. Meeting ISPM 15 standards ensures that the pallets are protected from pests and are weatherproofed.
If the pallets we collect cannot be refurbished, they won’t end up as waste! Instead, they’ll be collected and made into woodchippings. With our pallet collection service, you can rest assured that we take care of recycling pallets that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
Save the trees
During 2019, we were able to sell approximately 254,000 refurbished wooden pallets. After doing additional research, we found that 245,000 is roughly equivalent to 159 artic loads. On average, during 2019, we were able to save roughly 8,900 trees from being felled, thanks to our recycling facility.
Used Wooden Pallets
When you purchase used wooden pallets, you are helping us to reduce the need to use trees for our new wooden pallets. Used wooden pallets are available in a variety of sizes. Additionally, due to being reused, they are usually around 60% cheaper than new pallets. Make a cost-effective and environmentally friendly choice by purchasing from our used pallet range.
Ideal for use in shipping and DIY projects, used pallets are a fantastic alternative to other storage or shipping products. In the past, customers have used our pallets to create outside furniture and indoor tables. You can have a look at the projects previous customers from us have created from our used pallets here.
