HellermannTyton Announces Recyclable Wiring Duct

How one change will lessen the load on landfills.

MILWAUKEE - HellermannTyton’s entire line of wiring duct is certified by its PVC material manufacturer to be recyclable. The duct was approved to bear the code “3” (PVC) recycling stamp in January 2017 and has been in the field five months.

Companies that use wiring duct, such as original equipment manufacturers and electrical panel makers, typically purchase the product at lengths that are later cut to size for a particular application. If the remaining scraps are not marked with a recycling symbol, most recyclers will not accept them. Depending on the production scale, this waste can be significant.

“Sustainability is important to us and our customers,” said HellermannTyton Associate Product Manager Jessica Leverance. “Redirecting surplus material to a recycler helps our customers better meet their green initiatives – in addition to supporting our own commitment.”

HellermannTyton operates a robust Environmental Management System based on ISO 14001 requirements. The company seeks ways to integrate sustainability in all aspects of the business.
