Where To Recycle Wooden Pallets?

24 Feb 2022

Here at Associated Pallets, we are fully committed to helping the environment, and that is why you can use us to recycle your old and wanted pallets. Being sustainable is extremely important, and one way we contribute to that is by offering our own recycling service. If you no longer want your old pallets, you have come to the right place!

Recycling Service 

Bringing your old pallets to us is the best choice you can make. Sustainable practices are becoming increasingly more important as climate change continues, and we want to ensure we can help to the best of our abilities. We have over 20 years of experience in waste management, so you are in safe hands choosing us. We proudly manage the recycling of wooden pallets for businesses across the country. 

Wooden Pallet Collection and Recycling

Our Recycling Process 

Our main goal for our recycling process is to get the pallet back to practical use. In most cases, this means that we will always try to repair or refurbish the old pallet. This goal is always the first step for our team as we want to reduce timber waste as much as we possibly can. With the knowledge and skill our team presents, this step can usually be met for the unused and unwanted pallets. 

However, there may become times when we cannot refurbish or repair an old pallet. In this case, your old pallet will still not end up in a landfill site. We will strip and dismantle the pallet into reusable components. We do this using our high-quality pallet dismantling machine, and we will save the parts that we will be able to use again. If we find parts of the pallet that we cannot use again, we will send them off to a chipping facility.

Saving The Trees

We have so many amazing statistics, and one that we are extremely proud of is we have approximately sold 245,000 refurbished wooden pallets back into service in 2019 alone. This is an astonishing amount of refurbished pallets, and to think about the number of trees we saved! The timber from the pallets we couldn’t repair, we sent approximately 36 tonnes of wood to a chipping facility to be used for multiple other purposes. If we look further into the statistics, we have estimated that the 245,000 wooden pallets mean we roughly saved 8,900 trees from being felled!

In the last 18 months, our new recycled wooden pallets have saved an amazing 67 trees. The 67 trees are over 26 cubic meters which is a remarkable statistic to achieve in a year and a half. Also, for every 50 – 100 new recycled wooden pallets sold, we save one fully grown tree!
