Scott Group - Celebrating 30 years


Pallet Recovery

Our customers set ambitious targets in relation to sustainability and their environmental objectives. Together we work to the principles set out in the ‘waste management hierarchy’ to optimise the use and re-use of timber pallets and packaging, and to avoid generating waste to landfill.

Our award-winning, national packaging recovery, repair and re-use service offers a unique sustainable pallet solution which has been endorsed by WRAP (The Waste and Resources Action Programme) and secured several national awards.

Pallet Lifecycle

Our pallet recovery service provides a unique contribution to our customers’ sustainability credentials, and it is integral to our complete sustainable pallet solution. Our ability to develop successful relationships with our customers’ customers is critical to our delivery of this service.




As sustainability and environmental objectives have evolved to become key business priorities, for ourselves and our customers, we have committed to developing new and innovative services and sustainable solutions tailored to support the associated changing demands. Working collaboratively with industry bodies and relevant agencies, and in partnership with our customers, we have developed new, innovative and effective ways of recovering and re-using bespoke timber packaging, thereby optimising raw material use and eliminating wood waste. We are committed to circular economy principles.
