Hi, thank you for submitting your question to Answers.Google, I hope I
can provide the information you are seeking.

I feel your pain, around here I can get them free and we use them for
various things but I know local merchants have trouble getting rid of

Have you checked the pallet recycling network?

For Western Canada you want this link

There appears to be about 8 different grades and that will make a big
difference in whether you can sell them.

Assuming you have mixed used pallets (either ready to reuse or easily repaired), 

There is a world-wide pallet finder service at

Without actually joining and posting an offer I can?t determine the

This company says they buy truck loads of pallets classifiedPDFs/peclassFeb2005web.pdf

Check the addresses given on this site

D'N'A Lumber Inc.

FAX 604-585-9937
Products: 03 

The product code 01 indicates a manufacturer, code 02 offers
recycling, and 03 is a broker.

Without knowing more about the number, type and quality of your
pallets I can?t provide much more information but if DNA Lumber and
Dynamic Forrest Products can?t help I doubt you can do better than
selling them as firewood to local businesses and homeowners.

Thank you again for turning to Answers.Google for help. I hope this is
what you need.
