Recyclopedia: Pallets


Commercial loads of clean wood can be taken to Herman Brothers in Port Angeles (452-2670; Eclipse Industrial Park) to make "hog" fuel.  Otherwise they go in the garbage.

According to some studies, wood pallets make-up approximately 3% of total garbage. Alternatives to wood pallets include durable, reusable and collapsible pallets made from plastic, wire mesh or other materials. The purchase cost for these pallets is often more expensive, but over the long term they reduce costs with each return trip.

Many pallets are durable enough to make multiple ‘trips’. Reuse pallets in good condition and send broken pallets for repair.
