Wood Pallet Building
Wood pallets are a very important part of our modern society. Think about it. Wood pallets are used every single day in the USA to ship raw materials, finished goods, food and just about everything else, including recycled materials all across the nation. Without the humble wood pallet, things just wouldn't be as easy.
Over 425,000,000 wood pallets are produced yearly. Only the home building industry uses more wood per year than pallet manufactures.
Wood pallet disposal is an issue for many companies. Some companies place pallets out for public pick up. Others throw the pallets away. So the truth is, wood pallets can be used as a cheap, (free), building material for many projects.
