Spool Recycling Programme

Supporting a responsible and sustainable circular economy.

600,000 +

plastic spools produced each year

132 tonnes

of plastic potentially saved from landfill

1,000 spools

returned in the first month launched

Our plastic spools are 100% recyclable.

Which is why we are on a crusade to minimise and reduce waste-to-landfill, and encourage the principles of return, reuse, and recycle.

Our spool recycling programme is a simple and effective way to return empty plastic spools at point of sale, meaning sparkies can now drop off their empties when they buy their next roll of cable at their preferred wholesaler.

It's a gamechanger for distributors and electricians alike, who would normally have no option but to send the reels to landfill, despite their 100% recyclable nature.

Spools are then returned to Nexans for cleaning and checking whether they can reused or recycled; either option is a more sustainable and low-environmental impact solution than sending them to landfill.

Let us tell you more!

Where can I recycle?
