We offer two convenient options for recycling used polytube.
On-Farm Collection Site
Our fleet of specially equipped collection trucks and expert drivers will pick up used tubing in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and parts of Texas.
• We will pick up your used polytube for FREE (15-roll minimum) at your designated on-farm collection site
• Your collection site will be identified with an official sign that is available in several sizes
Delta Plastics Collection Site
Drop-off at any official Delta Plastics polytube collection site is FREE of charge.
Prepare polytube to be recycled by rolling it tightly into rolls at least 20'' in diameter using a polytube retriever or by baling it into large squares. Rolls should be secured with rope, tape, polytube or shrink-wrap to prevent unrolling. Wood/plastic cores may be left in the center of rolls. Because of the handling costs involved in recycling polytube, we cannot accept small, loose or spaghetti-style rolls of polytube.
