Types of Wood Used For Pallet Creation

When creating pallets the type and quality of wood are specific to accomplish the best results for intended use. When considering wood types for pallets the considerations are strength, durability, and recycling.

Types of wood used to create pallets vary in regions in the United States. Northern regions contain the least amount of wood and are mostly hardwood lumber. Southern and Western regions pallets are made mainly from softwoods. Western pallets use the most wood in production.

The reasons for the differences in regions are:

  • Wood available in the region
  • Industries needing shipment
  • Distance that products are being shipped

Wood pallets are produced to be expendable or reusable. Expendable pallets are limited use pallets and not expected to be reused again. Reusable pallets are built strong and durable wood.

Softwood use is a one-time use and often trashed after the first trip. This does not allow for pallet reuse. This wood requires lifting from both sides. Hardwoods provide reuse. The can be returned to the pallet company or resold as used pallets. They provide lifting from all four sides. The pallets usually provide a code for the types of loads they can carry.

Ways to Reduce Household Waste

Home

AMC Consolidated believes in reducing product waste by reuse, re-thinking purchases, and extending products. We have developed our business concept on reducing our product waste. Reducing will not only assist in saving planet earth, but also will reduce waste in your home and increase savings.

The misconception about reducing waste in your home is that it is time consuming and how much difference can one family home makes on the planet. Every step we make does make a difference in planet earth. The steps to reduce waste in your home can create a home that is more organized and open up more time by reducing time management of waste.

Reducing waste will increase your savings. Purchasing products that are more environmentally created, bulk, or proper size allow for less storing space, reduced budgets and time manage of products. This will allow more enjoyment time in your life.

Reducing waste home waste:

  • Purchase product sizes according to needs.
  • Consider the amount of packaging a product contains i.e. an outside box and inner plastic wrapper.
  • Buy products in bulk and use reusable containers for items. This will reduce waste while saving money.
  • Make your own salad dressings, sauces, and cleaning products with products you already purchases saves on packaging, reduces salt and food budget.
  •  Look for products that include eco labeling with their products
  • Composting raw kitchen products or yard waste this can reduce waste by about 30%.
  • Grow your own food according to seasons. This will reduce packaging, allow for a healthier food choice, and reduce your food budget (use the composting for fertilizer)
  • Purchase products you can reuse for something else i.e. glass jars for storing.
  • Consider walking short distances or taking public transportation once a week. This will reduce the wear on your car, lower your gas budget, and reduce carbon emissions.

Reducing waste in your home can create more than a reduction of waste, but a reduction in chemicals, time management, and unnecessary products. For further information regarding reducing or our product concepts you can contact AMC Consolidated.
