Associated Pallets Saves Winchester Fireworks Display!
07 Nov 2023
Recently, Associated Pallets made headlines in Winchester after we solved a firewood crisis leading up to the largest fireworks and bonfire night of the year.
The charity fireworks event is held in Winchester every year by the Winchester Round Table, and this year marked the 65th anniversary. However, rather than excitement, there was uncertainty as the previous supplier of firewood went out of business.
It takes an army of volunteers and material suppliers each year to make the charity event a reality, and without a grand collection of viable firewood, the event would’ve been shut down. After all, you can’t have a bonfire without something to burn!
Luckily, the team at Associated Pallets was able to pull through! We’ve always got a reliable supply of high-quality wooden pallets and pallet accessories on hand to meet our customers’ requirements. We’re proud to have been able to successfully save the Winchester fireworks display and let people all around the city enjoy the long-time traditional event.
The massive bonfire, which took place on Saturday, November 4th, at North Walls Recreation Ground, was crafted out of giant cubes of stacked wooden pallets! It was indeed a sight to see such a tower burn, and the orange and red flames were met with cheer and amazement from the crowds that attended.
For those concerned about the wood used for the bonfire, fret not! At Associated Pallets, we are dedicated to making the best use of all our wooden pallet stock, and we always have used wooden pallets available. Many of the used wooden pallets that we collect are not suitable for reselling and are too damaged to be repaired. What better way to prevent these wooden pallets from ending up in landfills where they are wasted than by using them for charity?
Be sure to save the date next year, as Associated Pallets is likely to help out again! You can get tickets for under £10, and we’re excited to help Winchester continue this decades-long charity tradition.
We’ve been in the business for over 30 years, and throughout the decades, our passion for our community and the passion they have for us has only grown.

Our free online quoting engine enables you to get a price for bespoke orders without any hassle, and our friendly team is always ready to help.
Other Creative Pallet Uses
Did you know that wooden pallets can be used for a lot more than just shipping and storing? It’s true! Our wooden pallets are manufactured from high-quality, sustainably sourced timber and are treated to remove all sorts of nasty bugs and pets without leaving any chemical residue behind. This means that the timber is safe to deconstruct and use for a lot of creative DIY projects, not just bonfires!
Some projects that we’ve seen include everything from wooden planters and shoe racks to swimming pools and porch sofas. Check out some of the other blogs on our website to make great use of your unwanted wooden pallets, or grab yourself some new and second hand wooden pallets via our online store.
Wooden Pallet Recycling & Collection Service
At Associated Pallets, we do more than just sell wooden pallets, collars, and accessories. We’ve made it our mission to help create a more sustainable pallet business and have already helped save literally tonnes of timber from going to waste. We have over 20 years of waste management experience, and we can collect your unwanted wooden pallets or pallet collars from anywhere across the UK.
Depending on the the type and number of pallets you have to hand over, we might even be able to pay you for them, so there’s no reason to let them go to waste. It’s a win-win for all!
Any of the pallets we collect as part of this service are refurbished and resold, or they are sent off to become wood chips. We send nothing to landfill!
