FEATURE SUSTAINABILITY ‘REUSE, RECYCLE, REPEAT’– The Responsible Plastic Pallet Company – is urging customers to reuse their plastic pallets and boxes, recycle them, and then repeat the process to help create a circular economy


his pertinent advice comes following what’s been a difficult last year for

plastic pallet’s biggest rival ‘the wooden pallet’ with timber shortages and price rises affecting availability and causing serious concern amongst pallet users. Jim Hardisty, managing director for, said: “Not only do we stock the largest range of plastic pallets, pallet boxes and small containers in the UK, all of our products are available in large volumes – our customers need not worry about supply shortages. “Our plastic pallets and boxes can be

reused time and time again; recycled once they reach the end of their working life; then the recycled plastic can be fed back into the manufacturing process to create new, high quality, reusable plastic pallets and boxes – closing the loop and creating a circular economy.” Following the company’s pledge last

month to recycle all of its customers’ plastic pallets and boxes, has had a lot of interest in its recycling scheme. But a question they’re frequently being asked is how exactly does it work? Hardisty explained: “We’ve tried to


make it as simple as possible for our customers to recycle their plastic pallets and boxes. Depending on the volume that customers wish to recycle, they can choose from one of our two recycling solutions. “For volumes in excess of 1500kg,

customers can take advantage of our hassle-free collection service, where we will arrange a collection and transport the products straight to our partner’s recycling facility in Belgium. Customers can arrange for smaller loads to be dropped off at our warehouse at their own convenience, where once consolidated we will transport in full truck loads to Belgium – ensuring our trucks are running at their maximum efficiency. “Our partner’s recycling factory in

Belgium is one of only three in Europe with a pallet recycling facility adjacent to the manufacturing plant, and is the closet one to the UK. By recycling our customers’ plastic pallets and boxes in Belgium we guarantee that they will not only be ethically recycled by a fully licensed facility, but also that the recovered material will be reused to make the next wave of high quality,

long life plastic pallets and boxes.” Our mission is to help create more

sustainable supply chains by providing long lasting, reusable plastic pallets and boxes, and ensuring they are responsibly recycled at the end of their use. We guarantee to take full responsibility

for recycling the plastic pallets and boxes we supply. Our recycled plastic pallets started life

as old pallets that are no longer needed or usable and household recycling waste. They are collected and all of the plastic

is ground into plastic pellet granules. The pellets are then moulded into a plastic pallet and delivered to the customer. These incredibly strong and durable

recycled plastic pallets can last around 10 years. When the pallet reaches the end of its

working life it is collected or sent to back Go Plastic Pallets, who then send the pallet to our factory in Belgium, where the process is repeated. To find out more head to T: +44 (0) 1323 744 057
