Recycling Fiber Optic Cables

This is a "Fresh Beginning" for the Recycling of Fiber Optic Cable

I probably don't need to tell you that each day a momentous tragic event occurs in thousands of our community landfills where millions of lbs. of plastic-based toxic materials are casually discarded. Years ago, and today, products are made without regard for the proper disposal of their scrap or at end of their useful life.

This is more than a US problem, this is worldwide, involving mega-millions of tons of this hazardous material.



Landfill



Our new team has worked diligently for the past 3+ years to find long term solutions. Many others have tried to resolve this issue but have been disillusioned by low margins returned for their efforts.

The solution is here, but we need your help, so we can effectively recycle fiber optic cable (FOC) and perform some final tests on other landfill materials such as CATV Coax Cable.

We need to know what quantities we can expect to receive. This is where your input is important.

As you could expect our plant facility has limitations as to quantities to be able to process. I suggest you get on record with your estimate of material type and weight. Once this facility reaches capacity additional materials may have to wait for the next opening.

Critical Mission #1: to stop the daily land-filling tons of hazardous materials.


We cannot accept PVC at this time, but we have several solutions planned - Coming Soon!

Your help is appreciated.

Recycle Process

The recycling process has had many Ups and Downs over the past 8 years.
Initially, I researched fiber cable manufacturers and the large telcos with no SOLUTION. Then I checked with large, nationwide recyclers. Most say they have tried to recycle fiber, but the economics were prohibitive. Cost too much to process and got too little in return. And, this material did not meet their normally expected margins. So, I looked overseas, internationally, and quickly discovered this is a WORLDWIDE problem!


Today, I have a few very small-scale processors who have been successful repurposing most of the fiber optic material. But still too small to handle the anticipated volume.


But, there is hope. For the past 3 years I been working with a group to recycle the fiber optic cable material. Funding and research has been completed. My theory is to offset low margins with high volumes.


We will be open for business soon!!
• Beginning in February I will be surveying the FOC mfgrs, service providers, contractors, recycling processors, and others to gather information about quantiites.
• In March we will begin taking some scrap fiber material.
• And, by May we will be taking whole fiber optic cable- not just scrap. Materials will be accepted on Reels/Boxes/Hand coils/Bales.


Here is a sample of the plastic lumber that is produced from recycled fiber optic cable:
