Tips for Pallet Recyclers

MARKET your recycling services

The Division of Environmental Assistance and Customer Service promotes pallet recycling through the NC Recycling Markets Directory and NC WasteTrader waste exchange. Your company may place free listings on these resources. Business assistance is available through the NC Recycling Business Assistance Center.

 NETWORK with local contacts

By introducing yourself and business to local government contacts, you may be able to establish new business opportunities with the local government and they may also help by directing commercial pallet generators to your company.

CONTACT landfills

Using the N.C. Division of Waste Management searchable database of solid waste facilities, contact solid waste and construction and demolition landfills to establish partnership opportunities to collect pallets and keep them out of the landfill.

SEARCH for recycling markets

To find end-markets for wood waste such as boiler fuel and mulch as well as mobile contract grinders, use the searchable N.C. Recycling Markets Directory.

CONTACT a recycling business staff member

The NC Recycling Business Assistance Center. (RBAC), works one-on-one with recycling companies to assess needs and provide both direct and indirect assistance through our partnering agencies. RBAC also has recycling business grant opportunities. Contact a staff member for help.
