Netafim USA opened a new California recycling center that repurposes used polyethylene tubing into a variety of plastic products, including Netafim landscape dripline.
PHX Recycling Inc, located in Fowler, Calif., is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Netafim, which oversees the entire recycling process.
Used landscape dripline from all manufacturers is accepted, if the tubing meets Netafim’s product testing and quality control standards. The company monitors the entire recycling process – from testing and evaluating used tubing in the field to washing, grinding and re-pelletizing.
Before tubing is accepted by PHX, a sample must be submitted to Netafim to determine material content and age. The dripline must also be debris- and contaminate-free and, if accepted, must be bundled or coiled prior to delivery or pick-up.
