Loads of questions are asked on what can you do with unwanted wooden pallets? So here we will give you a variety of options or alternatives you can do with your unwanted pallets. Also, how unwanted pallets would be beneficial and much useful for our company and our contribution to sustainability.
Recycling unwanted wooden pallets
Are you passionate about recycling and reducing global footprint? If the answers yes, then recycling old pallets and contributing to a sustainable environment is the best thing you could do.
Sustainability is at the forefront of our minds at the moment and as it should be. We are currently destroying our world which is affecting the livelihood of future generations. We must sit up and act against world pollution as it is currently damaging our lives, health and destroying our ecosystem as well as corrupting our natural resources.
Now more than ever it is vital we are aware of our waste management. Waste management is one of the major key issues affecting environmental problems.
Recycling wooden pallets can have a hugely positive impact on the environment. This can help to save millions of trees every year and the demand for trees is greatly reduced by recycling initiatives in the wooden pallet industry.
This saving of trees not only benefits the environment but also benefits human health, as trees can absorb carbon dioxide from the air and increase oxygen levels. It is important that the recycling efforts are continued so that the environment is protected. So, the pallet industry can continue working in a sustainable fashion.
TIPCI Group waste management
At TIPCI Group we work with our clients to ensure they have a sustainable and consistent supply chain of wooden pallets. Not only that, but we demonstrate a full recycled loop of pallets, by providing a collection service with on-site over-sized pallet bins. Our customers have full confidence that every piece of wood waste they put into the pallet bins is reprocessed, reused, or repurposed with none of it going to landfill.
We have a process that is easy and affordable for our customers. 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 pallet yard. We’ll happily take them off your hands.
How does it work?
Firstly, we place old pallet wood and timber through our crusher machine to produce our sustainable products. Such as sawdust and wood chippings, to either sell or carry on the process to make pallet blocks, for our brand-new pallets; for more information on the process of how our blocks are manufactured go check out our blog on ‘what pallet blocks are made of?’
What DIY projects can I do with unwanted wooden pallets?
One other popular alternative you can use when deciding what to do with unwanted pallets is changing the role of the pallet. For example, a piece of furniture or ornament inside your home or garden.
Pallets are a great material for upcycling and decorating inside your home or garden. First, you’ll want to add a bit of personality to your pallet furniture. For example, where it’s going to look best and what colours suit best for where it’s going to fit in. So, the easiest way to do this is with some exterior wood paint. Here is one example for you. Pallet tables are an easy DIY project and can add an extra style to your outdoor space.
To achieve this all you need to do is simply get two clean and sanded down pallets, stack them flat on top of each other and secure in place with a drill and screws. The effect of the natural pallet is already very nice. But if you prefer you can paint them with the colour of your choice.
