How does it work?
1. Place your order for the required number of bulk bags from your distributor
To participate in the Tubex Recycling Program you will need dedicated bulky sacks for the collection of the tree shelters, each one will hold roughly 350-400 Tubex Standard tree shelters at 1.2m height.
The Tubex Collection and Recycling Programme is a non-for-profit-scheme, the cost of participating is to cover the expenses of running the programme, project quotes are provided ad-hoc
2. Remove the tree shelter and fill the bulk sacks
Once the tree is ready, remove the tree shelter and fill the dedicated bulk sacks with the used Tubex tree shelters, once the bag is full please advice us so we can pick it up for you.
3. Bulky sacks collection
Tubex will collect the bulk bags and take them back to the distributor to store. Once we have a full lorry load of tubes in bulk bags, Tubex will again organise transport and collect from the distributor to take to the recycling plant. It is advised that 1-6 sacks are recycled locally or through your Tubex distributor. For more than 6 sacks contact Tubex team or your Tubex Distributor.
Once at the recycling plant, the tubes will be sorted, cleaned and afterwards reprocessed into rPP pellets or HDPE granulate.
5. Closing the loop
Recycled PP pellets are going to be re-used in Tubex products or to other Berry Global products
