Schwalbe UK are delighted to announce the launch of an inner tube recycling scheme. Announced at this year’s COREbike, the scheme is designed to encourage retailers to collect used inner tubes and return them to Schwalbe for recycling.
The scheme has been running successfully in Germany for five years with numerous dealers taking part and also started in the Netherlands last year. Retailers visiting The Core Bike Show will be invited to register their interest in the scheme in advance of the full scale UK rollout this Spring/Summer.
Tim Ward, from Schwalbe UK commented…”Schwalbe have been leading the way in Europe with this green initiative and sustainability is very important to us as a company. In a world where natural resources are increasingly exploited and under pressure, including rubber supply; it’s important to develop and support recycling technology. It’s estimated that 10-20 million used inner tubes are discarded into landfills each year…Schwalbe are determined to reduce this“.
Neil Spinney from Rule #65 Ltd commented…”We are extremely pleased to be a part of the Schwalbe tube recycling scheme. Rule #65 Ltd understand the need to recycle as many items as possible and hopefully this will help our fellow cyclists like myself with their surplus of used tubes sitting in their sheds and man caves.”
To return up to 3 tubes at a time please fill out the form below and we will send you details on how to return your tube/s.
