Generally, they are reconditioned. I take them back to where I buy my fert.They sell them for a buck apiece and the people that buy them from the fert dealer(2 hot chicks) double or triple that. That may not be possible for you if you are getting it shipped in by the truckload.Maybe your city landfill has some sort of arrangement with a pallet recycling center...hard to say.

Sod farms around here have pretty much gone to rolls. I still see a few squares stacked on pallets but it's rare.

Our local farm sells about 80/20, that's rolls to pallets. We get a pallet or 2 to cut in a roll job or for heavy slopes.
