Wood and Pallet Recycling Services
Agecko provide excellent wood and pallet recycling services for businesses all over the UK. Your waste is transformed into a new product, lowering your environmental impact.
Every year five million tonnes of waste wood is generated in the UK. Wood recycling and reprocessing is growing thanks to landfill taxes and government initiatives.
Pallets are the easiest of all wood waste to recycle. They are usually ‘clean’ (untreated) and easy to handle (they can be loaded/unloaded by forklift). All wooden pallets that are collected by Agecko are sorted into size and quality, ready to be recycled or reused. Any wood that cannot be reclaimed is chipped into animal bedding, biomass fuel or panel boards.
Recycling timber is a practice that was popularised in the early 1990s. Deforestation and climate change prompted both timber suppliers and consumers to turn to a more sustainable timber source. Wood waste is often turned into new wooden products – such as recycled wooden flooring or garden decking. Laminate (i.e. flooring) is generated from shredded wood glued together to make the final product. Waste wood can also be composted or burned as a fuel.
Agecko offer bespoke or scheduled collection and recycling service for all your unwanted pallets and wood. Many organisations we work with are already benefiting financially. Dependant on the quality of your pallets, you can qualify for wood and pallet recycling rebates.
