Fun Fact: Most wooden pallets are recycled – Timber recovered from damaged pallets are typically used to manufacture vast numbers of reconditioned pallets and other packaging materials. A recent survey in the US found that over 70% of all wooden pallets are now recycled – a much higher recycling rate than for aluminum, paper or plastic. Another report found that less than 5% of wooden pallets end up in landfills and, of course, they biodegrade there anyway! In any case, trees are generally not cut down to make pallets. The wood used for pallets is a by-product of the timber used in the construction of houses and furniture. The best wood is reserved for these items and the humble pallet is made from the off-cuts.
