How to wrap a pallet
Compostable Pallet Wrap is one of the most significant steps you can take to reduce your business's plastic waste and carbon footprint.
Pallet wrap is the connector of all businesses, and is a critical part of the global supply chain. Every day millions of pallets are wrapped to transport goods to their eventual consumer. However, very few facilities are capable of recycling petroleum-based pallet wrap — meaning more than 90% goes to landfill.
We’ve finally launched our Compostable Pallet Wrap so now your business can work towards a cleaner supply chain. It’s time to say goodbye to petroleum-based pallet wrap for good!
How to wrap a pallet with Great Wrap
- Once your pallet is stacked, grab your Compostable Pallet Wrap and tie it to a corner on the pallet base.
- Begin hand wrapping the bottom of your pallet by walking around the pallet — do this step a few times to ensure your load is stable.
- Gradually work your way up and around your pallet load. Make sure there is some resistance, but try not to over-stretch the wrap.
- Tear your wrap once you’ve finished, and tuck the top corner in.
For hand-wrapping, we recommend using two-inch core hand savers while you wrap. They help stop the edge of the wrap catching and make the work much easier on your hands.
At our facility in Tullamarine, we will make 5,000 tonnes of compostable stretch wrap this year and 20,000 tonnes by 2024 — we couldn’t do it without businesses like yours!
