If you have a pallet problem, e.g. the pallets are taking up too much space in your busy yard, then TIPCI can help you. Providing a comprehensive collection service, that includes an over-sized bin and collection from site, we enable busy operations to keep operating – by keeping pesky pallets out of the way. Moreover, with TIPCI you know that your pallets aren’t going to landfill – we will recycle and reuse your pallets, by refurbishing them or by processing down into woodchip and creating heat-treated pallet blocks.
Bring Your Pallets to TIPCI in Portsmouth
If you’re local to the Portsmouth area and you want rid of the pallets taking up space in your warehouse, yard or garden, but you don’t need a full collection service, bring your pallets to our yard. We’ll happily take them off your hands, where we will ensure your old pallet, no matter the condition, will not end up in landfill. Your pallet will be repurposed or, if it can’t be, we have an onsite pallet crushing machine that will process the waste wood, heat treat it and re-mould it into pallet blocks for heat-treated pallets.
However, if you have the odd pallet and you’re not sure what to do with it, or perhaps you’re looking for a recycle/ upcycle project, then here are a few fun tips from TIPCI on how to repurpose a pallet. To repurpose your pallet you may need to clean it down first (with a bleach solution) if it isn’t heat-treated. Then sand it down and give it a quick cover of protective varnish to preserve the wood
