    Hi Ian

    advertise them on sites like gumtree and if you need them gone just put them FOC, I use all the old pallets here at Etesia to build things like tables / picture frames / seats / planters & even a hutch for guiniepigs, people love reclaiming old pallets and would collect them from you no problem.

    the other side though is you could save them up until winter and make your own things like garden bars or furniture etc and then sell them onto your customers come spring, it would act as a little keep you busy sideline and will only cost you time which is better than taking that day off to do nothing in the rain

      We do the same. Advertise them in the local paper and people come and take them away for free. Especially around the end of October.

      They make good compost pens .  Dismantled you can use the wood to make protective fencing around your veg patch and lightweight gates .

        I use them for compost bins too. It's a win/ win. Customer gets free compost and i get somewhere to put grasscuttings and leaves.

  • save them for bonfire night

    Seen them cleverly used as a green/planting walls in gardens / on patios. Would look good outside of suitable businesses as well.

    Nicely done :)

    some pallet production facilities pay for them. Only about £1 each as the fix them up and sell them on. Thats how I get rid of mine over the summer and  during winter months they keep my house and my next door neighbours house warm.

    I have also built a chicken coop, a rabbit hutch and a log store out of some

    Have a look on YouTube people make all kinds of stuff out of pallet wood, using pallets as salad planters on allotments or raised beds seem to be quite popular at the moment too. So there's deffo a market for it.
    • definately! i know a bloke who built a cracking summer house with them!
