Conclusion

Introduction

Pallets are flat structures that are used to transport goods. They can be lifted by a pallet jack or a forklift when they’re full, or any other jack device. Pallets are sometimes known as skids and are the foundation of a unit load design. They can be made of wood, plastic, metal, and even paper.

The expanding use of using containers for the transportation of goods has resulted in an increased usage of pallets because the containers have clean and level surfaces that are suited for the movement and storage of a loaded pallet. Most pallets have a load bearing capacity that exceeds about a ton or two thousand pounds.

Every year, half a billion are manufactured in the United States and more than two billion pallets are in use at one time. They’re more efficient and cost effective because the goods can be moved faster with very little manpower. Organizations that utilize pallets for transport have a lower cost of handling and transportation than organizations that don’t.

So why recycle pallets for DIY projects?

In the United States, only home construction comes above the construction of pallets when it comes to the use of wood. A pallet has a limited useful life, in some cases, because it has to meet specifications in order to continue to be useful. Once damage of any kind has occurred, they’re considered unsafe for shipping and they are cast aside.

Recycling these pallets can be more cost beneficial to a company because of the reduction of the initial production cost. Recycled pallets prove to be stronger and stiffer because the wood is seasoned and can be stronger than boards used for the first time. That’s why a pallet that’s already been used can be a really great find. Stronger boards mean they resist breakage, and this means there’s less chance of a pallet bed breaking.

So what can you do with a pallet?

Make an outdoor stairway for a treehouse

Build a fence

Make a planter

Make a table

Make a coffee table

Make a strawberry planter

Make a coat rack

Make a vintage ice chest

Make a bench

Make a shadow box

Make a gun rack

Make a wine rack

And so much more!

Recycled wood is usually drier than other woods and has less water than new boards, which means less mold, corrosion, and mildew. This can increase the life of the pallet and what it’s being used for. Of course, the most benefit from a recycled wood pallet is that it’s excellent for the environment and there's an enormous saving of valuable natural resources.

Plastic pallets are also able to be recycled. Crumbling devices at factories will turn plastic pallets into pellets that can be remade into playground equipment, mold landscape accessories, floor mats, and even patio furniture. The costs are higher because of the cost of the special machinery, but the cost to the environment is worse if the pallets are discarded.

However, the cost of obtaining a pallet from a business that no longer wants it can be
