Recycled Pallets

A reliable source for Plastic Pallet information and leading Plastic Pallet Companies & Manufacturers.

Recycled pallets refer to flat transport structures made from recycled plastic materials. They are used to support goods stably as they are carried from one point to another using a forklift, pallet jack, front loader, jacking device, or crane. Recycled pallets are usually made of strong plastic or wooden material that can withstand very strong weights without faulting. Read More…

Recycled Pallets Recycled pallets are plastic pallets that have reached the end of their usable life and have been recycled. Plastic pallets can be reprocessed into new plastic pallets, or their plastic can be reprocessed into a completely new plastic product. Since most plastics are made from high-density polyethylene, or HDPE, they can be broken down and reprocessed into almost any HDPE-based plastic product.

How Recycled Pallets Function

Recycled pallets are usually made of strong plastic or wooden material that can withstand strong weights without faulting. Some goods require fastening, so a strong rope is used to secure them and ensure they will not tumble off the pallet. The pallet is lifted from either side by a forklift that inserts extended blades through the openings at the pallet's base.

Other mechanisms can also be used, like a pallet jack that acts as a manual handheld wheelbarrow to carry pallets from one point to the other.

How Recycled Pallets are Made

Plastic is brought to a recycling center, where it is cleaned and passed through a plastic shredder that cuts it down into small pieces and granules. The plastic is then heated and molded into the desired pallet shape and size. After cooling, the pallet is branded and de-flashed for commercial and industrial use.

Types of Recycled Pallets

The different types of pallets that can be recycled include:

Two-Way Entry

Two-way entry pallets are designed with openings on two opposite sides of the pallet, where the forklift of the carrying mechanism lifts the pallet.

Four-Way Entry

Four-way entry pallets have openings on all four sides and can be accessed by the forklift from either side. However, they are less robust and have lesser weight-bearing ability than the two-way entry pallets.

Open Deck Pallet

Open deck pallets have gaps in between the deck boards. The gaps greatly reduce the weight and density of the structure, making them relatively inexpensive. They cannot be used in the carriage of smaller items as they would fall off.

Solid Deck Pallet

These pallets are made of a single sheet of plastic without any gaps. Solid deck pallets are easy to handle, clean, and transport. Unlike open deck pallets, they are ideal for the carriage of small goods.

Double Face Pallet

Unlike solid deck pallets, double face pallets come with a top and bottom face. The extra deck increases the strength and convenience of using it as it counteracts and distributes the entire load placed on it.

Applications and Benefits of Recycled Pallets

The applications and benefits of recycled pallets include:

Applications of Recycled Pallets

The main use of recycled pallets is in transporting goods in factories and warehouses. For example, goods like packets of medical supplies and cartons of liquid products are carefully laid on pallets and transported from one point to the other through forklifts and pallet jacks. The military uses plastic pallets to pack military supplies and even vehicles, which are then loaded into airplanes that are later dropped at high altitudes with parachutes. Plastic pallets are used because they are lighter and can withstand the impact upon reaching the ground. Recycled pallets are also used for displaying commercial products. Retailers and vendors use pallets to pack and display their products so that customers can easily identify and take desired goods.

Benefits of Recycled Pallets

Pallets are cheap to manufacture. Old pallets and other plastics can be used to make new pallets, making production and manufacturing very cheap. Recycled plastic pallets have a long lifespan since their area of usage does not involve rapidly moving parts that bring about wear and tear. Plastic pallets are also very easy to transport because they are flexible and versatile and can be used in numerous applications. The pallets are also hygienic and safer for everyone.
