Every year, U.S. manufacturers make over half a billion wooden pallets. At any given moment, over two billion are in circulation. Companies use pallets for storage, transport and organization. Because of their load-bearing responsibilities, pallets must meet certain criteria to be safe and useful. Recycling pallets is an eco-friendly and money-saving alternative to destroying them and purchasing new ones.
