Pallets are used extensively in industry for shipping merchandise. Stapled crates, pallets and nailed crates are used worldwide for logistics. This is why their construction is simple: wooden packaging must be long lasting and easy to reuse. For disposal and recycling, it is first crushed, shredded and then sorted. The system shreds disposable pallets, damaged euro-pallets and wooden packaging. All foreign elements like nails, screws and staples are crushed along with the skids and then removed by metal separators and collected in a container.
