Pallets

Recycling over 55 million pallets annually, one of the pillars of our business is ensuring that pallets are properly handled at their end-of-life, with as few as possible being disposed in landfills. Our pallet recycling program most often deals with two types of pallets:

Wood
  • After being repaired and reused to their utmost potential, wood pallets are sorted and ground into wood chips or mulched for use in various value-added applications. These include farm animal bedding, chipboard materials, and biomass fuel, which utilizes renewable resources to generate energy for sites such as electrical plants and manufacturing facilities.

Plastic
  • Plastic pallets are generally composed of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and/or polyethylene (PP). After sorting, we hand scrap plastic pallets over to our recycling partners, who reprocess and repurpose these materials for use in other plastic products. Some common applications of HDPE are plastic beverage bottles, pipes for distributing natural gas, bottle crates, and grocery bags, while PP is most used in consumer goods, medical products and equipment, and parts used in the automotive industry.

Pooled Pallets
  • To ensure that all pool pallets are returned to the associated pooling company, these pallets are sorted onsite and loaded for retrieval by the pooler themselves. With this, our customers need not worry whether their pool pallets are being delivered on time to the appropriate location.

Cardboard and/or Old Corrugated Containers

Paper waste produced by cardboard is often a point of pain at DCs and store locations alike. After use, corrugated containers are baled onsite and loaded for our partners to retrieve. These materials are recycled for further use in OCC applications, such as paperboard, cardboard packaging for consumer products, and printer paper, as well as a number of other paper products.

Other Product Categories

Plastic Bales/Miscellaneous Plastics
  • As with plastic pallets, we collect both high-density and low-density polyethylene (HDPE and LDPE) waste products for recycling. Like HDPE, LDPE may be used in packaging, but is also suitable for use in any application that requires flexible or soft plastic parts. Once baled in DCs, these plastics are carried to partner mills to be processed and reused for any of these purposes.

Industrial Totes
  • Intermediate bulk container or IBC totes are most often composed of plastic bins affixed to metal frames. Generally being recycled through reuse, we collect these containers and transport them to resellers, where they are then sold in other markets. This creates a revenue stream for our customers that requires no extra effort on their part.

Pressed Wood
  • There are many types of boards and packaging created from pressed wood, yet not all can be disposed of in the same way. We collect these waste products to be handled in the most ethical manner possible. Recyclable pressed wood boards like plywood are ground or shredded for use in any application where wood waste is repurposed. Those that cannot be recycled, such as particle board, are handed off to be disposed of through the appropriate channels. In some volumes, however, these may be used for solidification applications.

Styrofoam
  • Famously difficult to dispose of, we strive to employ landfill diversion options wherever possible when managing styrofoam waste. When volumes allow, these products are run through densifiers, either onsite or with one of our recycling partners, that allows them to be sold as a commodity for reuse. This typically results in a notable revenue stream for customers via rebates.

Customer Returns (CRTVs)
  • When customer returns have been returned to the DC, they are first separated and stored until ready for pickup by one of our partners in wholesale. Some are then broken down and repackaged, while others are returned to the manufacturer.

Metal
  • We collect metal materials of all types for recycling, such as containers, displays, and more. Once collected, these materials are sent to partners in recycling to be melted down and repurposed for a number of applications, the most common of which being food and beverage packaging. Other common uses for recycled scrap metals include building materials, plumbing, ductwork, and automobiles.

Rental Trailers
  • With market fluctuations and seasonal demand spikes, storage space can become a precious commodity when product is moving rapidly. For our customers, we offer trailer rental services that provide supplemental storage capacity to manage spatial challemges whenever needed. This program is especially beneficial to store locations that, lacking storage space of their own, may utilize rental trailers to hold excess and outbound pallets and materials, keeping backrooms or docks clear and available for use.
