    Craigslist or a pallet recycler

    In some areas there are companies that buy them. $3 or so each.

    Worst case, your local landfill may have a wood grinding pile for mulch, etc.

    We also have a roll-off business. We get so many I'm tempted to get an outdoor boiler that can burn them.

    I break up the pallet and use the support pieces to start fire in the fireplace. The rest, I give to a local dairy farmer to burn.

    You may be able to donate them to a local storage facility. The ones I have rented at keep a supply on hand for customers to use if they want to keep their stored items off of the floor.

    Sell them back or donate them to the local fire academy and write it off.

    Set them out front with a free sign on them. If your area's anything like mine they will be gone. We have people that make a living collecting them. Once they get some, they will cruise by all the time looking for more.Might even look in the phone book for pallet places. They may send some one out and pay you to take that many.
