Our bedding product is produced by grinding dry wood from old pallet wood and other wood waste. The wood is ground to a fine consistency by our RotoChopper wood processing machine, and any metal is extracted.
The finished product is very dry compared to industry standard. (Lab Tested at the UW Experimental farm to have a 12-14% moisture content), The bedding has a fine texture consistency that is very absorbent with less dust, and it tends to hold up longer in high moisture with out turning soggy as the traditional sawdust or shaving products do.

Wood Fuel Pellets
Wood Fuel Pellets
Hay Creek Companies continue their support of the environment and now manufacture wood fuel pellets for consumer use. These wood fuel pellets are manufactured by compressing sawdust remnants from the lumber industry, furniture and flooring, and from forestry by-products. The wood materials used to manufacture the pellets are only recycled wood products. Thus, burning these pellets is a carbon neutral process. All wood pellets manufactured at Hay Creek meet strict ash content, moisture content and heat output standards. We follow the guidelines for premium wood fuel pellets established by the Pellet Fuels Institute.
Hay Creek wood fuel pellets are supplied to our many retailers and can be purchased from those dealers in our network.
Our team at Hay Creek Pallet is committed to solving the material handling needs of its customers. We anticipate our customer’s needs, with consideration to how transportation, handling, storage, and how the general marketplace will impact those needs. Staying current with the latest innovations in the industry helps us deliver the best solutions and service to our customers.
A quality reconditioned pallet, when acceptable for shipping requirements, provides the same function as a new pallet but costs less. Hay Creek Pallet is one of the area’s largest sources of refurbished pallets. We stock the standard GMA 48 X 40 in #1 and #2 (#2’s have a double or repaired stringer). Our used pallet cores are inspected and repaired accordingly on our assembly line using the latest equipment available in the industry, making the refurbishing process as fast and efficient as possible. Our team members take pride in their workmanship by paying attention to detail to ensure a high quality product.
If you cannot find a reconditioned pallet in your size and you would rather not pay the higher price of a new pallet, a remanufactured pallet can be the solution. This is a very effective way to lower pallet costs. A pallet remanufactured with all used components is known as a “Hybrid”. When a combination of new stringers and used deck boards are used, or vice vera, the pallet is known as a “Combo”.
Hay Creek Pallet will build to your specifications any new pallet you need. Our computerized design software can assist you in designing a pallet that meets your shipping and unit load requirements while determining the most economical solution. Our new pallets are produced in large quantities using a Viking Automatic pallet assembly machine. The Viking machine is the newest available technology in the industry providing a fast, efficient assembly process while maintaining high quality standards. Smaller quantity orders of custom sizes are produced with precision built jigs and hand held pneumatic nailers.
Heat Treated Pallets
Hay Creek Pallet provides onsite heat treating services for our customers. We will custom heat treat pallets for your company. A heat treated pallet is one which has been heated at the core to 56 degrees Celsius for a minimum of 30 minutes. The pallet is then stenciled with the number and logo of Hay Creek Pallet certifying the heat treating service. Pallets used in certain industries and particularly pallets shipped internationally, require heat treating. To stay current with changing heat treating issues, implementation dates, and member countries, please refer to the following sources:
