You will quickly realize that wood pallets can be found everywhere, or even that it will take a lot of courage to resist the urge to stop in front of each pallet you cross 🙂
Companies or businesses:
To find free pallets and given their uses, it makes sense to look for them on the side of companies that have material delivered, the pallets are often kept outside, in this case, feel free to enter and ask if you can take some of them, some companies are even happy that you get rid of them, in this case it’s the jackpot…
Think of printing shops, household appliances or furniture stores, for example. Small stores often try to give them away because it clogs their delivery areas and forces them to call professionals to clear them. The best thing is to come by in the evening just before closing time.
The building sites have the material delivered by pallets (tiles, cinder blocks, cement…). While large construction sites are interesting “spots”, smaller construction sites such as houses under construction are often more accessible. You will certainly find some pallets waiting for you. (It will, however, be necessary to be a little bold to go see a stranger and ask him for his pallets!).
Waste disposal center:
Go for a walk in your waste collection center, you will certainly come across a few wooden pallets, but the hardest part will be to be able to leave with them. Indeed, it is common to find pallets in waste collection centers, but it is forbidden to recover them! The contents of the tippers and containers of a waste collection center belong to the community that owns the site or to the management company.
In the street:
Even simpler, but rarer, take advantage of the days of bulky pickup to go around your neighborhood, with a little luck you may come across a pallet waiting for you at the end of a street.
You too have your own veins, don’t hesitate to share them 🙂
