Recycling wooden pallets creates jobs

For every 10,000 tonnes of waste recycled, there are 9.2 jobs created as opposed to 2.8 jobs for the same amount of material sent to landfill.

For every 10,000 tonnes of waste recycled, there are 9.2 jobs created as opposed to 2.8 jobs for the same amount of material sent to landfill.   

This statistic holds true (approximately) for Waste Converters Recycling. They currently recycle 50,000 tonnes of material per annum and employ 45 staff.

Most wood pallets can be reused and repaired multiple times, aside from a small proportion designed for single use. Reusing the pallets saves trees, energy and diverts useable materials from landfill. Pallets that can't be reused can be recycled into a range of wood-based products.

Martin Davis (Martin Davis Furniture Design) from Waratah Bay in Victoria designs and makes one-off commission pieces of handmade contemporary furniture for private and business clients. He believes that in making successful contemporary furniture one must address craft and design with an equal level of respect and skill. His furniture is handmade and built to last for generations, displaying traditional joinery techniques in contemporary ways. Read more...
