How to recycle wooden pallets
As a self storage facility we do see a lot of wooden pallets, they're incredibly useful; allowing our customers to keep items off the floor, stacking loose items and shrink wrap them together to make transport easier and more stable and they allow the forklift to easily lift things on and off lorries.
However, we do seem to get a surplus of them and they are not the easiest things to dispose of but we do have people that come by the stores to collect and upcycle them. We were intrigued to see what could be made with a pallet and have compiled a few of our favourites below.
