ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS

A-1 Pallet is proud to support the local market; we work with our lumber suppliers to purchase suitable lumber from a variety of Western Canadian mills.

Manufacturing in a lean-style by cutting and building to order (and even loading direct to our trailers), we keep our waste levels minimal. Being a custom product manufacturer allows us to cut a variety of sizes out of each stick of lumber we purchase. The lumber we are unable to cut is either sold for firewood or re-purposed in other industries. Even our sawdust gets used.

Wood is good and a renewable resource. The Canadian Wood Pallet & Container Association (CWPCA) has shared some very useful information and links on various environmental impacts of pallets; providing answers and better understanding.
