How To Dispose Of Old Wooden Pallets

14 May 2021

how to dispose of old wooden pallets

Part of our service involves disposing of old wooden pallets. Our ethos has a sustainable focus, where it’s more important now than ever to protect the environment. Used pallet collection is a superb method of reducing pallet/timber wastage.

Managing used pallets can take time but call also be incredibly expensive to do. Our pallet collections mean we pick up your used pallets once they reach the end of their lifespan. They get refurbished to transform to be reused once again.

Our Pallet Collection Culture

Here at Associated Pallets we are committed to sustainable practices and ensuring the protection of the environment. As a minimum, we comply with regulations and standards set out for improving sustainability and the environment. In fact, we have implemented a quality and environmental management system to the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 standards.

All staff and people working on behalf of the company are made aware of the aims and objectives of the Quality and Environmental Management System and associated operating procedures, are expected to adhere to its requirements, and are encouraged to suggest ways in which these can be improved.

Our Service

There may be times when the pallets we collect are beyond repair. In these instances, pallets will be stripped and dismantled into reusable components with our pallet dismantling machine. Any pallets which are of an odd size or unable to reuse or dismantle will be sent to a chipping facility.

Therefore, we can guarantee that any pallets we collect from you will be either recycled or repurposed and won’t go towards additional timber waste. Whether you are opting for new or used wooden pallets, you are choosing a beneficial product to store and transport your goods.

Positive Environmental Impact

Here at Associated Pallets, we sold approximately 245,000 refurbished wooden pallets that were put back into service in 2019. We also sent approximately 36 tonnes of scrap wood to be turned into wood chip which can then be used for many other uses. If we dig a bit deeper we can estimate that 245,000 wooden pallets are roughly 159 full artic loads. In turn, this means we saved roughly 8,900 average trees from being felled!

Timber pallets are created from the off-cuts of wood used for higher-end products. As they are made from such a widely recycled material, they can be used again and again. Less than 5% of pallets are sent to landfill sites, meaning at least 95% of timber results in a useful product. From the small percentage that does end up in landfill, they will eventually biodegrade, with little to no detrimental effect to the eco-system.
