    Research shows that discarded pallets account for more than 2% of the solid waste found in the nation’s municipal landfills. In addition, more than 38% of hardwoods harvested in the country goes into the manufacture of pallets. This article describes a collaboration between North Carolina State University, the U.S. Forest Service and Waste Reduction Partners to transform used pallet lumber into attractive hardwood flooring.
