Used Pallet Collection: how can it benefit your business?
Used pallet collection offers a whole host of benefits. Most importantly, it’s one of the most environmentally friendly methods of reducing pallet/timber wastage. If your organisation has generated a large amount of unwanted wooden pallets with no collection arrangement, these can quickly become an inconvenience.
Managing used pallets can not only take up a significant amount of time but disposal can often be expensive. This is where PR Pallets can help!
Our used pallet collection service
In the UK, unwanted pallets are considered as waste, therefore, strict waste management legislation is applicable to used pallets. Our network of recovery specialists is able to collect used pallets from your location and return them to our depot where they can be inspected, repaired and returned to you when required.
Our used pallet collection service is a straightforward choice for organisations who no longer require their pallets; by allowing us to manage the entire collection process. The inconvenience of dealing with large amounts of unwanted pallets is completely removed, allowing you to focus on business as normal whilst we take care of the rest!
Since beginning operations in 2014, our used pallet collection service has successfully collected and repurposed over 80,000 pallets. On average, we operate over 1500 used pallet collections a year… a number that is rapidly growing!
This is a significant number of pallets which could have otherwise been scrapped or disposed of but instead, will remain in the pallet chain for many years to come.
For environmental as well as compliance reasons, we aim to recycle and repurpose as many used pallets as possible through our used pallet collection service. You can be confident that where possible we will repair pallets and sell on as used pallets, or if the pallet is beyond repair, sold on and used as wood chips.
Used pallets should not be burdensome to you, which is why PR Pallets aim to take the responsibility of handling them away from you. You can direct your much needed time and effort elsewhere whilst we manage the entire collection process for you – leaving us both to do what we do best!
How much does used pallet collection cost?
PR Pallets specialise in the construction and food sector, and with the price of timber steadily rising, new wooden pallet prices are also increasing. The recovery of pallets for reuse can help reduce pallet and packaging spend, as this process can be implemented with little effort, and returning a reusable pallet is considerably cheaper than buying new pallets.
Depending on the type of pallets we obtain as part of our used pallet collection service, collections could potentially be free, or in some cases, we may even be able to offer rebates. We do charge for scrap pallets, but if the stock is of a high-quality we are more than happy to pay for the pallets and give rebates directly to the customer.
