Now that we’re in the final months of the 2017-18 heating season, you might have a pile of empty wood pellet bags and wood pallets around. Do you have pellets set aside that were damaged by water? Here’s why you shouldn’t just throw out water damaged wood pellets.
As for the empty bags – if you’d like to try and recycle them, check with your local transfer station to see what the protocol is. The wood pallets your fuel was delivered on could be handy to keep around for re-stacking pellets later, because the bags should never be placed directly on the floor in your storage area. But what if you wanted to “upcycle”, and reuse empty bags and pallets for something new?
Upcycling is the conversion of useless products back into something of value. It’s a great way to be both environmentally friendly and budget conscious. We’ve tested out many DIY projects, and gotten some great ideas from our customers. Here are some of our upcycling posts:
