Pallets can be "clean" or chemical treated.

How can I tell if my pallet is "clean"? Read this online pallet safety tutorial (external website) to identify whether your pallet was treated with pesticides. "Clean" lumber is stamped with the letters HT (Heat Treatment), KD (kiln-dried),  or DB (debarked).


Contact a recycling company below to ask about recycling clean and treated pallets. Verify accepted items, hours, and fees.

Do-it-yourselfers want clean pallets for projects. Give away or sell your pallets online through Craigslist, Freecycle, Nextdoor, or local Facebook groups.

Use caution reusing treated pallets.


Recycling is cheaper than disposal. Wood must be cut into 8 foot or smaller pieces. Large amounts (over 3 cubic yards) must be taken to Olympic View Transfer Station. Customers must unload the item themselves.
