Tubex expands tree shelter and recycling network

Tubex has announced a major expansion of its Tree Shelter Collection and Recycling Programme as a “convenient way” for customers to handle the products “responsibly” at end of life.

The tree shelter specialist is providing hubs around the UK where tree shelters can be dropped off to be recycled. Tubex will be covering the costs to ensure the service is free of charge. This includes bailing, washing, recycling and re-pelletizing the material so that it can be used to create more shelters. All types of tree shelters will accepted, providing they are made from Polypropylene.

The scheme is a joint initiative with charity Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT), which opened several hubs of its own in 2021. There will be a total of 14 national hub locations launched this year. Tubex’s parent company Berry Global will provide five of the hub locations, while forest and woodland management company Tillhill is also supporting the scheme by offering two locations for shelter collection.

Tubex’s marketing & product development director, James Taylor explains: “Since its inception, our plan has been to continually progress the Tubex Collection and Recycling Programme and offer the opportunity for our customers to recycle their shelters locally. This new hub scheme is a significant investment from Tubex into the industry to ensure responsible solutions for the tree shelters at their end of life.”

The news of the scheme comes after the company’s recent announcement of its Grow Together Programme, a charitable planting initiative where Tubex is offering tree shelter donation to a different voluntary planting project each quarter.
