She then offers some tips and safety information. Her focus is on pallet crates and not open wooden pallets. However, some of the points she covers apply to both. She discusses topics like:
- What did the wooden pallet originally carry?
- What’s the best way to dismantle a pallet crate?
- How about pallet nails?
- How was the pallet wood treated (Extremely important) ?
It’s advisable to use pallet wood that has the IPPC logo. It will have the following information:
- 2 letter country code
- Unique ID number assigned by the National Plant Protection Organization (NPPO)
- HT for Heat Treatment
- MB for Methyl Bromide (Huge red flag)
- DB = debarked
If you find a pallet without an IPPC logo, don’t use it because you don’t know how the pallet was treated and what it came into contact with. If it has an IPPC logo and says MB (Methyl Bromide), a pesticide, don’t use the pallet.
