Sydney pallet company, Enviro Pallets (NSW), really has become the king of pallet recyclers in this country.
Sales in the company’s recycling divisions have absolutely rocketed this calendar year, as clients, old and new, go down the recycled pallet path.
There reasons for doing so are three-fold – the cheaper cost, the quality of the second-hand products and because it is also environmentally-friendly.
This year, Enviro Pallets, based at Glendenning in Sydney’s west, will recycle not only close to 300,000 softwood and hardwood pallets but around 47,000 plastic pallets.
Sales in the recycled timber pallets have increased 20% in 2006, up from just under 250,000 in 2005 but what has really amazed Enviro Pallets staff is the mind-boggling increase in the number of recycled plastic pallets leaving the yard this calendar year.
The increase in plastic pallet sales in 2006 has been more than double what Enviro Pallets marketed in 2005, it seems more and more clients are foregoing new pallets, plastic and timber, for recycled second-handers.
