chainge program: Recycle your old cable carrier and receive a discount

Sustainable and eco-friendly practices are becoming increasingly important in all facets of life, including within the engineering industry where plastic materials are extremely versatile and can be more efficient than metal due to their optimized frictional properties. 
Our chainge Recycling Program allows you to recycle your old cable carriers in exchange for a voucher. Here’s how it works: you send us your cable carriers, we separate (unmix) the plastic material, shred it on site, and send the unmixed granulate material to our recycling partner in Massachusetts. Then, you’ll receive a voucher based on the weight of your recycled cable carriers, which you can use to purchase new igus® products.

Follow these steps to submit your old cable carrier for the chainge recycling program:
