While there are reasons for why alternative type pallets are used, when it comes to friendliness to the environment, wood pallets stack up well against the alternatives. Wood is 100% renewable and as we do at HayCreek Pallet, it can be recycled and reused. In contrast, other types of pallets are made from resources that are limited. Because wood can be refurbished, this means they last for a long time. And when the pallets are no longer useful, they can be recycled into mulch, animal bedding and wood fuel pellets.
That's a big win for wood pallets!
