Wooden pallets or plastic pallets? Which pallet type is stronger and costs less? Tri County Pallet 330-848-0313

Wood remains the most common pallet material used in the United States. Some companies choose to use plastic pallets that are more expensive, not as strong, less environmentally friendly, and cost much more than wooden pallets.

Wood pallets are recyclable, can be repaired, are less costly, and can hold more weight than plastic. Plastic pallets cost two to three times the price of wood, are not easily repaired, are not as stiff, and have fire safety ratings.

Wooden pallets carry more weight than do plastic pallets. The average plastic pallet can carry up to 1,500 pounds whereas a wooden pallet can carry upwards of 3,000 pounds.

Tri County Pallet can not only meet your wood pallet shipping needs, but can also provide just-in-time total pallet management. They will work with you to anticipate appropriate pallet inventory levels so you don’t have to figure it out on your own.

If your company is concerned about the environment, then you should consider the environmental impact created by purchasing plastic instead of wooden pallets. Plastic pallets are made from fossil fuel and need to be melted down to be recycled, causing air pollution. Wood pallets, however, are made from a sustainable natural resource and are easily repaired and recycled.

If a wooden pallet is damaged beyond repair it is ground into high quality decorative wood mulch. This process is good for the environment and helps keep residential and commercial properties looking great.
