We believe that pallets should not take up significant time and effort to manage. That’s why RPS looks after the entire collection and supply process for our customers, taking the hassle out of pallets.
Legislation requires businesses to seek alternative environmental solutions to landfill and the Circular Economy Package sets out preferable options regarding sustainable packaging waste management.
To help clarify the advantages of pallet reuse and reycling, and why RPS is the go to company for pallets, look no further than our handy PALLETS acronym:
P – Price
As part of our pallet recovery for reuse service, once your pallets have been collected, inspected and repaired, you only pay once they have been delivered back to your site for reuse. There is no financial risk and minimal effort to achieve sustainable cost savings. Also, for used pallet collections, RPS offers competitive rebates helping you to achieve the best value possible.
A – Accreditation
Our corporate credentials include essential licenses, permits and accreditations, all available to read or download from our online online audit pack. All collections we perform are compliant, using the correct waste transfer paperwork.
L – Logistics
Our entire national collection and supply process is co-ordinated from our head office on Teesside. We have a strong network of hauliers to make sure collections are completed quickly and without any hassle. Our move to a larger operational site in 2020 ensures that we have the most up to date facilities and space to handle the pallets we collect.
L – Location
With a strategic network, RPS performs national pallet collections and our City Service expanded our collection capability into cities such as Manchester, Birmingham and London. This national capability provides businesses across the country with a simple collection solution that is environmentally responsible and cost effective. Not only that, the regional locations of our network ensure minimal driving distanced between collection points and operational centres, providing a more sustainable collection process with a lower carbon footprint.
E – Efficient
We are constantly looking for ways to further improve our services and operations. In order to do this, we established business improvement targets for each department and have set ourselves a 2021 ambition to achieve committed efficiency milestones!
T – Time
Management of used pallets can take up precious time and resources, and disposal can be expensive, especially if your business uses wood skips. Our exemplary collection performance firmly within 10 workings days ensures a quick and easy pallet clearance service, taking the hassle away from you so you can focus on your business and what’s most important.
S – Sustainable
Our pallet reuse process encourages resource efficiencies. RPS always looks for the most environmental and cost effective solutions for wooden packaging and as part of existing and upcoming environmental legislation, reuse is far more sustainable than recycling and energy recovery. Recycling is great for products that cannot be reused anymore, but if a pallet can be repaired and reused, fewer resources, materials and energy are required compared to using new pallets. This provides our customers with great sustainability.
