You don’t think much of them, those pallets. They’re a mainstay of the logistics world and can be found in every single warehouse around the globe. Without pallets, transporting goods would be so cost-prohibitive it’d likely be impossible, and yet it’s so easy to not even notice them. Ever wonder what happens to these things once they’ve outlived their usefulness? They’re made of wood, so you’d be forgiven for thinking they all end up in a landfill somewhere at the end of their lifecycle. At Goodwood, however, we’ve made a habit of taking all manner of waste wood and turning it into useful, reborn, and repurposed wood goods including playground surfacing and coloured mulch in Auckland and Wellington. We know more than a little bit about pallets and want to share some inside information about the remarkable world of pallet recycling.
Pallet Recycling is a Thing?
It certainly is. As attitudes about recycling have changed over the decades, the demand for recycled materials has increased and the pallet recycling industry has grown exponentially. Slowly but surely, people have warmed up not only to the idea of using recycled pallets, but taking old pallets and turning them into new products such as coloured mulch. We not only protect the environment (on account of the recycling) and supply the people that need the new products but also help the industries with the old pallets since they’ve been banging their heads against the wall trying to figure out what to do with all those old unusable pallets. A win-win for everyone involved!
What kind of company can handle the immense responsibility of taking on these unwanted pallets and turning them into coloured mulch, or some other new product that will add value to the community? They’re usually located near urban areas, or locations where this kind of wood waste is being produced. They have large premises to do the recycling and an area to store their newly recycled commercial wares. It also helps if they have a passion for what they are doing and are dedicated to the preservation of the environment. If it sounds like we’re describing ourselves, that’s because we are. We’re the go-to guys for coloured mulch in Wellington and Auckland, in addition to a bunch of other recycled wood products. Our coloured mulch and natural mulch is all manufactured from untreated, recycled timber and coloured with an environmentally friendly oxide stain. It’s the number one choice for landscapers, home gardeners, and developers. Our Goodfall playground surfacing is a big hit since it’s safe for both the environment and the kids. We even make firewood out of old wood; you can pick it up from our retail yard or we can deliver it right to your home.
