Reel-Cycle Program

Our Reel-Cycle Program is a no-cost recycling program offering the end-user the cost-avoidance associated with disposing of the used reel. The reels you return do not have to be in pristine condition but need to be “like new” condition—scuffs, scratches, dents, and lightly weathered surfaces are acceptable. Reel-Cycle Program gives you measurable savings in disposal costs and investment recovery.

All you need to do is call 713-369-3139 or email recovery@Reel-Logix.com and arrange for a pickup of your empty steel reels, wood reels, or poly-fiber reels and spools.

Reel Savings in Disposal Costs and Resource Utilization

The Reel-Cycle Program is your best-all-around choice for recycling wire and cable reels. Through the Reel-Cycle reel recycling program, Reel-Logix collects used reels from utility companies, contractors, and distributors, repairs and refurbishes them, then returns them to wire and cable manufacturers for reuse. As the program brings reels full circle, it:

  • Makes reel recycling effortless with a customized Reel-Cycle program designed to meet your specific needs
  • Saves on your seemingly ever-growing costs of disposal and landfill fees
  • Helps you fulfill your commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable processes
  • Helps you generate excellent marketing and sales tool with regular reports detailing how many trees and how much landfill space you have saved

Recycling Disposal Program

The disposal costs of one-way packaging are significant. This is particularly true of large steel 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.

Our method and how it works:

  • Reel-Logix Solutions has a network of reel return depots and recycling centers where used reels are received and graded
  • Reusable reels are inspected repaired, painted as required
  • 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 wood reel recycling

REEL RETURN GUIDELINES

Reels must meet the following standards:

  • Reels must be made of nailed wood reels with 30”-72” diameter flanges or all steel, with 30-180” diameter flanges
  • To be usable Wood Reel lumber must be sound
  • Reel recovery location must be geographically within 500 miles proximity to our nearest recycling facilities
  • Reels must be in “Like New” condition and recently de-spooled of wire and cable ( reels are normally in unusable condition after 1-2 month in outside weather conditions)
  • Lumber must be yellow to light gray in color and without wood rot or excessive deterioration
  • Flanges cannot be visibly warped or have broken boards
  • Boards with broken edges through one ply only are still acceptable
  • At least 75% of stave boards around the drum must be intact, Arbor holes cannot be damaged and drive holes cannot be torn out
