Safe in our hands


We offer a comprehensive pallet collection & recycling service that can bring revenue into the business & reduce fire risk on your site.

Wood pallets are highly useful platforms for heavy loads, but dealing with them afterwards isn’t that straightforward.

Unwanted pallets are heavy and bulky, meaning that they can quickly become a nuisance or even a health and safety risk on busy business premises.

Flame UK provides a comprehensive pallet collection and recycling service in which you can have absolute trust.

We’ll always collect on time and will help you turn your unwanted pallets into income.

How does our pallet collection service work?

To do this, we inspect the quality of all pallets. Those in good condition are offered up for immediate re-use. Any which can be repaired are made good before going back out into the market.

Broken pallets can be recycled as wood waste and re-purposed for a large number of industrial uses, such as new furniture.

Flexibility is at the heart of our offering. We will take away pallets in any condition and buy or sell used pallets from/for you. We can provide you with replacements too. Our knowledgeable team are always on hand to offer advice on the best approach for you.

Our focus on pallet reuse helps to boost your environmental credentials and minimise the number of trees cut down to produce new ones.

How many pallets will we collect?

We can collect 50 – 500 pallets. No matter if you only have a small number of pallets, we can still collect them depending on your location. Want to find out more? Give us a call on 0115 8965460 to arrange a collection that suits you

How do I get rid of Blue Pallets?

Unfortunately, as Blue pallets are owned by the CHEP company, we’re unable to help you destroy or remove Blue Pallets. However, we do recommend reading CHEP’s own advice on how these can be dealt with. Alternatively, be sure to contact your local CHEP office or the company you obtained them off for further information.

What is the significance of Blue or Red Pallets?

The significance tends to be down to the brand that manufacturers the pallet. Blue pallets are known around the world to be from CHEP, and red pallets are commonly from IPP. Each may have specific markings or stamps on the wood to indicate certain treatments the pallet has received. These pallets are rented rather than sold and cannot be traded. Both companies have strict enforcement policies to prevent misuse and trading so if you find yourself in possession of a blue or red pallet, please contact their offices to return them.

Do I need to count second-hand pallets in my packaging waste regulations submission?

Second hand pallets are exempt of packaging waste regulations and only new ones require counting. If you would like to know more about how pallets effect your waste regulations submission, please give us a call today on 0115 8965460.
