Specific Needs and Problems

Pallet manufacturers and pallet companies are faced with significant challenges. Companies are paying more for landfill and raw material costs. Many of our pallet customers are continually seeking better and smarter ways to recycle pallets because the cost of dumping and disposing of pallet scrap has increased 300% over the last five years.

For pallet companies searching for on-site pallet recycling equipment, the wood grinder must be incredibly durable and long-lasting. Cresswood helps companies across the country address these specific equipment and operational challenges:

  • Elimination of high tipping & landfill spend
  • Improve material flow and increase floor space
  • Adoption of “Zero-Waste” environmental initiatives
  • Conversion of wood waste into highly desirable by-products
  • Reliable and robust solutions built specifically for pallet recycling
Our pallet recycling experts can demonstrate how to increase profitability by recycling unwanted pallets and therefore maximizing the total value within every pallet core. By using Cresswood’s low RPM industrial wood grinder, pallet companies can eliminate the pains associated with expensive scrap disposal by converting unwanted expenses into sought-after by-products like mulch, animal bedding, bio-fuel, or filler for composite materials.
