Wooden Pallets

Set up a collection SITE

site iconPallet collection sites typically require very little equipment or supplies. A separate area for pallets can be designated at most existing local government solid waste or yard waste facilities. Pallets can be stacked in a pile or put in containers for shipping, depending on the requirements of the recycling vendor. Minimal signage is typically required for such collection sites. Commercial businesses and haulers can be asked to stack the pallets, minimizing the labor required to maintain the site.

If the collected pallets are unsuitable for reuse or repair, they may be simply mixed with existing yard waste, clean wood waste or construction and demolition recycling operations. This method typically requires no change in current operation beyond advertising the new recycling service to the public.

To provide a financial incentive to recycle pallets, a reduced tip fee may be implemented for separated loads of pallets and other yard or wood waste.
