Many people are surprised to learn that wooden pallet manufacturers offer a very eco-friendly service to the forest product industries. Rather than “wasting” natural resources on the creation of shipping components, our industry is actually eliminating waste. Here’s how that works.
When lumber is milled, it is also graded. Some lumber doesn’t meet the grade for residential or commercial construction. This industrial lumber is what we use for pallet stock and the wood pallets for sale from our company.
The smaller wood waste from our plant is also strategically used. Some is ground up into sawdust and is sold to local farmers for dry animal bedding; whatever is left is used to fuel the furnaces at the plant. Omega Hardwoods is proud of the part we play in resource conservation for the forest products industry.
