Wooden pallets are one of the country’s top uses of new wood, most of this wood having low cosmetic value with little other use. This means that wooden pallets are much more environmentally friendly than plastic pallets. Less than 30% of nearly 700 million pallets manufactured each year end up in landfills. Used pallets that cannot be repaired are broken apart and boards are used to repair other pallets or ground into mulch.
