Your go-to guide for waste & recycling in the Twin Cities.
Not a recycling center. Repairs pallets and re-sells them.
Wood pallets can often be reused or repaired. See the list of businesses below that rebuild and repair wood pallets for reuse. Non-reusable, untreated wood pallets can be ground into sawdust for animal bedding or chipped for use in landscaping. See the chart below, or see Wood Waste.
To reduce wood pallet waste, choose durable alternatives such as reusable pallets made from plastic or composites of materials other than wood. Although the purchase price of non-wood options may be higher, reusable packaging generally reduces long-term costs while resulting in an efficient flow of goods through distribution channels and improved worker safety. For more information, see How To Reduce Shipping Materials. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency maintains a list reusable transport packaging resources. Use Reusables provides detailed information on environmental advantages reusable transport packaging offers while it adds to your bottom line. The site is supported by the Reusable Packaging Association and the StopWaste Partnership.
