True unmixed recycling: how to do it

You can send us your old plastic energy chains instead of simply disposing of them with other products as part of your industrial waste. The key is that we accept all energy chains, even those from other manufacturers. We collect returns with the aim of maximising recycling, either in our own production or through the use of a recycling partner who will send the material for reuse. We separate the material on site and shred everything we can use for production into regranulate. We reward your commitment with an igus voucher based on the weight of the chain sent to us.
