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.
United Products fulfill a variety of packaging needs including stock and custom corrugated materials, packaging tape, displays, stretch wrap and film, bags, pallets, and more.
We’ve been through a few providers in previous years, but [United] stayed persistent and convinced us to give them a chance. We are happy we did. Our stretch wrap rolls are of higher quality and we are now paying less per case. Additionally, the customer service is excellent. We provide retail sales to some of the largest retailers in the United States so it’s important our pallets are secure.

United takes care of me for all of my custom boxes, tape and stretch wrap needs. They are the best vendor for supplies I’ve ever had. I sent Michael at United a text the other day that said, “You are the best vendor ever,” because truly he is and I mean it. He also surprises me with Krispy Kreme’s often!
