Recycling Program

our-company

The disposal costs of one-way packaging are significant. This is particularly true of large plywood and nailed-wood reels. These high-value reels are prime candidates for recycling and re-use. The number of “turns” a reel can make is an important factor by which to judge value.

HOW IT WORKS

• One Source Reel has a network of reel return depots and recycling centers where used reels are received and graded.
• Reusable reels are repaired, painted as required, and the bolts are tightened.
• Many recycled reel users elect to attach a special logo to highlight the fact that the reel is recycled
and that their company is concerned and doing its part in conserving our natural resources.
• Reels with broken flanges or torn arbor holes are not suitable for recycling.

RECYCLING BENEFITS

With the One Source Reel program, resources are conserved and economic advantages accrue to all involved.
• The reel recipient avoids disposal costs.
• The reel customer buys recycled reels at a fraction of what a new reel would cost.
• One Source Reel gains new work in recycling the used reels.
• Planet Earth also benefits because less waste goes into landfills.
