Recycling your wooden pallets is an important part of the pallet lifecycle. Due to their largely organic composition, wooden pallets are considered an environmentally superior product to other shipping materials: they’re 100% recyclable and can be reused as-is, repaired into an improved product, or ground down into a secondary profitable product.
The “highly recyclable” nature of wooden pallets, therefore, provides profitable opportunities for pallet providers to turn their pallet waste into other environmentally friendly substances, as well as pay fewer tipping fee by reducing waste per ton. Let’s take a look at how.
Rotochopper Horizontal Pallet Grinders
Wooden pallet waste is recycled through the use of a horizontal pallet grinder. Grinders use various sizes of screens and teeth to correctly cut and size the feedstock, transforming the pallet waste into new materials, including premium fiber products, such as animal bedding and colored landscape mulch.
However, not all pallet recycling solutions are built equally. Ideally, your equipment should allow you to process feedstock quickly and efficiently, saving your operation time and money whenever possible.
At Rotochopper, our electric and diesel grinders are built with “Perfect In One Pass” technology, allowing operators to maximize the efficiency of their pallet grinding business without compromising the size consistency and quality of their end product. For operations big and small, we offer grinders of various sizes and horsepower to tackle the toughest, brushiest feedstocks.
As a factory-direct company, Rotochopper’s spirit of constant innovation has led to new technology that further streamlines pallet recycling operations, including:
- The Generation 2 Colorizer, which allows operators to grind and color premium landscaping mulch in one pass
- The GB-250 portable bagger, which allows operators to fill and seal retail bags from anywhere
The combined use of Rotochopper equipment, such as horizontal grinders, screeners, conveyors, and portable baggers, will help you grind, color, move, and bag your final product. This will streamline your pallet recycling process, minimize wasted time and effort, and improve your operation’s efficiency.

Rotochopper’s new MT series trommel screens further improve size consistency and allow operators to screen out fines, offering increased end product versatility. In addition to screening, our MT series can be used to color your feedstock.
Conveyor systems, like the Rotochopper 365 & 480 Conveyors, help you increase productivity by mitigating the need for additional operators and equipment. A Rotochopper conveyor will help reduce double handling of material through continuous stacking and storing.
