Returnable Packaging Services Ltd helps to look after the environment by reusing existing wooden pallets
rather than encourage new pallet manufacture.
In our fifteenth year, we have decided to plant a grove of 15 trees, one for every year of business.
Wood is a durable and valuable resource and is perfect for manufacturing wooden packaging,
but where reuse is an option, RPS will make it happen.

Timber is an important resource in the manufacture of durable wooden pacakging. For almost a century, wooden pallets have been in circulation transporting goods around the world. In recent times, the environment and waste management has been discussed at a high level and the UK Government acknowledges the importance of everyone doing their bit. Since 2002, Returnable Packaging Services Ltd has been collecting used pallets for reuse for numerous industry sectors. Rather than dispose of wooden pallets needlessly after a single use, RPS encourages the collection, inspection, repair and reuse of pallets so businesses can implement a sustainable solution to transit packaging. Not only does reusing pallets benefit the environment, it also improves packaging spend as reconditioned pallets can be supplied at a reduced price compared to new pallet replacements. By planting the grove of trees, RPS is bringing back to the environment a habitat that will help wildlife flourish. The fifteen trees we've planted represent a tree for every year we've been operating. We look forward to future success helping to reduce wooden packaging waste, encourage pallet reuse and hopefully plant more trees.
