Recycle Pallet Wrap with Plastic Bags

Pallet wrap cannot be recycled with other hard plastics, because it is a film that can easily get stuck in recycling equipment. Instead, pallet wrap should be recycled with plastic bags.

Did You Know?

Plastic vs. Wood Pallets

Plastic pallets are more eco-friendly than ones made from wood. Plastic pallets last much longer and are easily recycled, while wooden pallets need to be sent to the landfill if a specific recycler won’t take them. Wood pallets are also susceptible to chemical and bacterial contamination.
