Pallets are used to transport products efficiently with minimal damage to goods. Some pallets are designed for one time use while others are durable enough to make multiple trips. There are companies that refurbish and reuse repairable pallets. Pallets that are damaged beyond repair can be recycled. Contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline for more information on reuse or recycling options for pallets.
The B.C. Industrial Materials Exchange is also an excellent place to post listings for reusable pallets. For more information on the program, visit www.bcimex.ca.
