During the sorting we check if the pallets meet the criteria for exchange, whether they are being repaired or may even be irreparable and therefore have to be disposed.
Especially the Euro pallet is an extremely robust pallet and can often be reused. But even the best pallet breaks down at some point - usually by forklift or lift trucks and also by too heavy or not evenly distributed loads.
Our goal is to repair the pallets in accordance with the EPAL guidelines and to return them to the used pallet market. The non-repairable pallets are processed to wood chips. In the waste material recycle the nails are getting separated, rejected and sold to steel disposal companies.
