The Benefits of Used Pallet Collection

Disposing of used pallets is one of life’s greatest burdens. It takes up your time, money and effort and interrupts your business processes – if you’re not taking advantage of a used pallets collection service, that is.

PR Pallets have been operating a used pallet collection service since 2014, and have since successfully and repurposed over 80,000 pallets. Not only is this helping businesses massively with waste pallet issues, but it’s also an environmentally friendly approach, minimising the number of pallets being thrown out as waste.

Over the past 10 years, the number of pallets ending up in the landfill has reduced by a huge 86%, as used pallet disposal services become the obvious choice.

How does our used pallet collection service work?

PR Pallets have a network of recovery specialists who are able to collect used pallets from your location and return them to our depot where they can be inspected, repaired and returned to you as and when required.

Allowing us to manage the entire collection process means you’re not having to spend precious time or effort in finding the best solution. 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!

We currently undertake over 1500 used pallet collections a year, with this number growing rapidly, demonstrating how businesses are putting sustainability first in today’s day and age. Without recycling programmes like these in place, a significant number of these pallets would have otherwise ended up in landfill, despite having years of service left in them!

Of course, there comes a time in a pallets life where it simply has done its job. But that doesn’t stop us from collecting them. For environmental and compliance reasons we seek to recycle and repurpose as many used pallets as possible through our used pallet collection service. So you can be confident that where we can repair pallets, we will do so and sell on as used pallets. And where the pallet is beyond repair, we will use it for woodchips!

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?

If you work in the construction and food sector you’re probably aware of the rising prices of timber. Which means you might also be aware of the rising prices of new wooden pallets. 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.

In some cases, collection can be free and in others, we can even offer rebates. Ultimately, prices depend on the type of pallets we receive back. The higher the quality, the lower the price. It should be noted, however, that we do charge for scrap pallets.
