Re: [GreenYes] wooden crates
There are three possible avenues that I would suggest exploring:
Contacting Industry Trade Associations that have some kind of involvement in wooden packaging.  I would first contact the National Wood Pallet and Container Association
Contacting reuse organizations.  A good starting point would be the Reuse Development Organization (REDO)
They may be able to direct you to organizations that can assist you in finding a higher and better use for the wooden crates you have.
Placing listings with appropriate materials exchanges. The purpose of materials exchanges is to help bring together potential sources and users of surplused or unwanted materials.  Listings of these exchanges can be found at these links:  (Select the link to Materials Exchanges)

Subject: [GreenYes] wooden crates

Chris, came close to meeting you several times at the National Recycling Coalition in Austin this year.  Every time I walked by you were away from your booth.  Maybe next time.
My company is now taking all the wood waste from a large local company to recycle it and keep it out of the landfills.  I've addressed this room once before about this but got little response (althought that response WAS appreciated).  I have an abundance of once-used wooden crates of a variety of sizes.  Like 2 x 2 x 2 to the size of a shed.  I tried contacting vermicomposters to no avail.
Anyone out there know of any uses for crates?  They are in pristine condition, and we would hate to turn them into mulch (landfilling is NOT an option).
Thanks in advance for any advice.
