What would you like to Recycle?

Pallets

Pallets
Stacked up in the alley, stands a forest worth of trees in the form of pallets. Most products you purchase—such as groceries, clothes and paint—arrive at the store on pallets inside of a truck.

How do I go green?

Reduce

Choose foods and products with less packaging, because less packaging means less weight and space in transit, equating to fewer pallets used.

Reuse

Use old pallets to construct a compost bin, a table for the workshop, or a tree house for kids to play in.  Keep your wood pile (or almost anything else) dry and off the wet ground by stacking it on a pallet. 

Recycle

Bring your pallets in to your local lumber recycling facility so they can process them in the greenest possible manner.
