The Environmental Impact of Pallet Recycling

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) published by the NWPCA, in conjunction with the Pallet Found and the U.S. Forest Service’s research wing (U.S. Forest Product Lab), has found breakthrough evidence that proper pallet recycling practices have the potential to make the wooden pallet a carbon-neutral product. The wooden pallets EPD also provides concrete evidence on the amount of carbon emissions saved by recycling and repairing a pallet, rather than building new.
