    Try Craigslist for your area.

    Companies that receive or ship large products, e.g. air conditioners, heat pumps, motors, etc, frequently have wood pallets to dispose of and will give them away. I get mine from an electrical supply house. If they use them for shipping their own products, they'll likely share the name of their supplier.

    Look on Craigs List or check with companies that receive large shipments.

  • Try behind any strip mall by the dumpsters. Any little shop that you frequent, just ask!

    Check to see if you have a Habitat for Humanity Restore in your area. Go to and type in ' habitat for humanity restore' (name of your town ) Don't use the ( part. Just type in the area where you live. Like - habitat for humanity restore Miami fl. You should find the closest one that way. Call or visit to see if they have any.

    Good luck!

    @Karenfarrington Your city should be large enough or near enough to Portland for you to get pallets for free. Here are a few suggestions, all of which require you to go and get the pallets.
    1. Go to a nursery. They get in and move heavy bags of mulch and rocks on pallets. Once these have been used they are discarded. It's very hard to break down pallets, so if you find broken pallets, take them.
    2. Repalletize in Portland gives away free pallets if you go pick them up. Seems to be near Colwood Golf Center.
    3. Go to home improvement stores, furniture stores, any manufacturers of heavy items. These use many pallets and there are very likely discards.
    4. Go to building sites, landscaping sites, houses which are getting new roofs. Since the contractors have to pay to haul off their trash by the ton, they will often give you pallets and other items that would be in their dumpsters.
    5. Go down alleys early and late in the day so you won't get in the way of delivery trucks. You will often find pallets piled behind restaurants, florists, and other public places that get frequent deliveries. Trash is free.

    Best wishes 😇
