DescriptionFew people would argue with the statement that interest in pallet recycling has increased in the last few years. Several trends have lead to this increased interest. First, increased awareness of the environment and activities that affect the environment has caused a previously unconcerned public to ask: What happens to all those pallets? Many pallet producers, concerned about the availability of reasonably priced materials, have begun to look at used pallets as a raw material opportunity. Pallet users have turned to repaired and recycled pallets as a way to decrease their product handling costs. Finally, increasing attention is being paid to recycling and solid waste disposal at many levels of government.
