One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure
The trash – or rather treasure – in question is odd-sized pallets. Not even remotely useful or desirable to many, ours have long been revered by local retiree, Roger ‘Woodchip’.
A neighbour of our Stores Manager, Paul Taylor, resourceful Roger has been calling in to collect our unwanted pallets for well over two years.
Many of us arrive for a new day to see 74-year old Roger busy dismantling pallets and loading them onto his trailer, oblivious to their fate. Until now…

After leaving Signwaves, the pallets travel a short distance across town to the Yarmouth Racecourse allotments, where they start their new life as fences or even sheds.

Any that don’t quite ‘cut it’ (can you see what we did there…) are taken back to Roger’s home workshop and transformed into, amongst other things, model aeroplanes and windmills.
Best of all, Signwaves staff have been rewarded (let’s be honest, for doing very little!) with the fruits of Roger’s horticultural labour, including some delicious apples and pears, much to our delight and appreciation.
Any pallets that don’t make it to Roger’s ‘pallet paradise’ are carefully disposed of via a local recycling company, who shred them up for use in manufacturing chipboard. But that’s another story…
