This is the second part of a two-part article. In 1994, the authors reported in the Pallet Enterprise on their study of new and recovered wood use for pallets and containers. In part one of this article, published in September's Pallet Enterprise, they reported on the results of a new survey in 1996 of new wood use by the pallet and container industry, comparing the latest results to previous studies. Their research is based on a study of 2,600 wooden pallet and container manufacturers in the United States who were surveyed about their 1995 production. This article, part two, focuses on recycled pallets.
