What do we do with Pallets?
Pallets can be recycled in a variety of ways. Pallets in good condition can be used again; or repaired before they are put back into use. Broken, unpainted pallets are sorted into clean wood waste and chipped or ground into wood fibre. Wood fibre has a variety of uses, including landscape mulch, wood pellets and horse arena footing called “hog fuel.”
Wood pallets are popular for DIY projects, too, and people sometimes contact us to see what we have on hand. With a little creative ingenuity, wood pallets can be fashioned into things like coffee tables, garden trellises, swing seats, shoe racks, and headboards. Painted or chemically treated pallets require special handling and may not be safe for DIY use, at Island Junk Removal Solutions we’ll make sure these pallets are disposed of properly.
