    Becoming a scrap pallet collector can be a great self-employment idea to generate a primary or supplementary income. The pallet collector makes money by picking up unwanted pallets and selling them to pallet recycling businesses or pallet end users.

    I worked with a guy for a month and it sucked with him. He had no license and really screwed me. He told me this was his business and that he was the only one pallet buyers would take. Boy, I was naive, and soon he would pick a fight when someone else would come along, like they were stealing from him. He was greedy, and soon I racked up bills. Then, he would blow off and I would never hear back. I thought something isn’t right and I found this. Y’all are a blessing, and now I can use this as a tool and proof. Thanks

    I used to recycle pallets. It’s worth it. The problem is that I lost my pick-up truck and I want to start again and get a list of buyers.

      Perhaps you can use some of our posts to make some extra money and buy another vehicle. Then, use this post to help you get started again. I hope it works out for you.

    I have a question. When do you consider a pallet, or pallets, scrap? I had a friend show me some pallets behind a strip mall stacked up around a dumpster. He said they were giving them away. So, I took some right along with him. Now I’m in trouble for taking them. I was wondering if I have any legal excuse for this. Normally I would have made sure it was OK but he had given me the information on some other pallets and it turned out alright.

      This sounds like a question that you might need professional legal advice about. I urge you to consult with a legal professional as this questions is out of my scope of knowledge. Yes, to be safe you should probably always ask first, but I know that won’t help you after the fact. I hope you have good luck getting the situation resolved with minimal legal repercussions.

    I’ve just started a wooden pallet recycling business and need more buyers and some leads can be helpful as well. I am based in Gauteng and I also deliver to North West as well.
