According to the study by Virginia Polytechnic Institute and the USDA Forestry Service, 3% of the 700 million pallets manufactured each year end up in landfills – perhaps after only being used a few times. Waste of any kind increases both financial and environmental costs. Luckily, more and more people are getting concerned about the environment and they are all for recycling old materials. If a wood pallet reached the end of its life, the components can be reused to repair other pallets or to construct so many other things (see these 60+ Amazing Designs Using Reclaimed Pallets. )

This video by Shane Conlan shows how to dismantle a pallet without breaking the planks. Pulling apart a pallet can be a labor intensive and frustrating task if you don’t know how to do it properly and since you will be dealing with old wood, the boards tend to split if not removed the right way.

Wooden pallets seem ideal for reuse: They are wood, they’re recycled and sometimes you can even get them for free. What could go wrong? It turns out that the wood can often be impregnated with chemicals, or even carrying bacteria and other harmful stuff that might pose harm to you and your family. You should also learn to read the symbols as these indicate whether it was heat treated or fumigated with insecticide to prevent pests.

Before dismantling the pallet, it is advised to wash and disinfect the boards accordingly. Scrub the wood with soapy water and some bleach if you like. Rinse down well, and allow to completely dry. If you own a power washer, this is a good time to use it.

If the pallets are left outside in any amount of rain before you got your hands on them, that moisture can rapidly become a breeding ground for mold. Even if you spend hours scrubbing your pallets, bacteria can still remain within that piece of wood. With that said, I recommend to use the scavenged materials for outdoor projects like benches or compost bins. If they got left out over winter, having them inside your house might not be worth the risk.


Ok, here’s the tutorial:
