Carris Recycling Centers:

How it Works

Receiving & Grading

Carris has developed a network of reel return depots and recycling centers where used reels are accepted and graded on a three-point grading system, ranging from excellent condition to scrap.



Reusable reels are repaired as required, which can include tightening or replacing bolts. All surfaces that come into contact with wire and/or cable are cleaned and sanded down and inspected for exposed nails and repaired to fill voids.



Flange faces are painted and re-stenciled if required with the manufacturer’s logo. Many recycled reel users elect to display a special logo that highlights the fact that the reel is recycled.


Final Inspection & Redistribution

Our highly qualified team of experts conduct a final inspection of the recycled reel. After inspection, the recycled reel is reintroduced into the wire and cable manufacturing process.
