    whata u guys do with your empty pallets?

    past few yrs i had a guy that came every week and collected them,
    he has been a no show this year, dont know what happened to him,

    now ive got this montrous pile of like 80-90 pallets behind my shop
    i need to get rid of

    i dont have the time to deal with hauling them around myself

    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.

    My local sod farm pays $5 each. We take all ours to them and any we can find

    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.
