Wood & Pallet Recycling

Nowadays almost everything is being transported on pallets and once the load is taken off they just lay around and are most of the time never used again. You could have them picked up and sell them to Recycling Facilities, which will reuse them.

About Wood Recycling

The sources of wood are typically:

  • Municipal Waste - furniture, wood packaging etc.
  • Industrial and Commercial waste - Food packaging, pallets, furniture, wood products etc.
  • Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste - structural wood, wood packaging and other unwanted wood products.

Wood Recycling Facts

Every once in a while a pallet has had its days and cannot be used anymore. So should they be thrown away? Or is there something else you can do with it once they reached this stage? Glad that you asked, because these pallets can still be used. Parts can be used for refurbished pallets and otherwise the wood can be used for mulch, bedding or stove firewood. Then there is shredding the wood into small pieces (chips). The size of the chips are determined by the final application. 

These wood chips may then be used as:  

  • Animal Bedding
  • Coloured and used for surfacing
  • Reformed into another product such as MDF, chipboard or Wood Polymer Composite (WPC) 


Remember: As with many materials, re-use can be preferable to recycling. Wood furniture may not be suitable for you anymore, but it could find a new home through a charity shop.
