For what it's worth. Where I am it's a tough market. We pay $2.00 ea for "good" wooden pallets. This price is delivered and we buy min. 200 per. I did see a special on recycling these but they basically turn them into pressboard etc... they sell the nails to scrap yards! Did a little research on this because the return did not seem worth the investment. In some areas the good old govt. subsidises them because of the renewable green factor. Me personally I try to keep Uncle Sam out of my business.
Std pallet is called a 4x4. This is 48 x48 inches.
