The TPU material from which Tubolitos are made is 100% recyclable. With the Tubolito Recycling Program, we create an easy way to return used Tubolitos to us. Together with our customers and partners, we want to close the loop in this way. Used Tubolitos can be simply returned free of charge to participating recycling partners. The partners collect them and send them back to us. The program is currently available in Germany and Austria.
Collecting the tubes is the first major challenge. For recycling, we work together with partners. In the first step, they clean the material and remove foreign parts, such as the metal valve cores. The material obtained in this way can then be reprocessed into granules, which we can add to the production of new tubes. Of course, we make sure that the recycled material meets the same quality criteria as the original. The recovered granules can also be used for other TPU products (shoe soles, wheelbarrow tires, etc.).
Currently we offer our recycling program in Germany and Austria. You can simply drop off your old tubes at a recycling partner near you. In the Shop Finder you can find dealers who participate.
If you are a dealer and want to become a recycling partner, please contact the distributor in your country, they will provide you with all the necessary information.
By using high-quality materials, Tubolitos could be produced with significantly less water consumption and CO2 emissions than hoses made of butyl or latex.
Compared to a latex hose, the production of a Tubolitos saves the amount of water of about 15 filled bathtubs.
In case we ask you to submit product information about your Tubolito for quality review purposes, please send us the following two codes.
Step 1. Finding the Product Code of your Tubolito:
The product code is a 9 digit code next to the Tubolito logo on your tube.
In the example picture: 907111206
Step 2. Finding the Batch Code of your Tubolito:
The batch code is made up of 4 or 5 digits and a letter and is printed right underneath the name of your Tubolito.
In the example picture: 19465A
