Using Netafim drip line for irrigation is reliable, easy and convenient. With Netafim Recoil, disposing of used irrigation drip line in an environmentally responsible way is just as easy, reliable and convenient. At Netafim we adopt a triple-bottom line approach to our Corporate Social Responsibility. This is centralized around three core principles: People, Planet and Productivity.
Our Recoil, drip line recycling program addresses the supply chain sustainability needs of today’s growers. It is the most comprehensive drip line recycling service available on the market today and Netafim is the only drip irrigation manufacturer committed to offering a recycling service to our clients. Making it easier than ever to recycle ole drip line that is no longer required when our clients replace their old drip lines with a new Netafim irrigation product. It's all part of what we do to help Australian agriculture to GROW MORE WITH LESS™.
While Netafim smart irrigation systems have far superior environmental credentials than other methods, we are aware that the only way to be truly sustainable to is to reduce the amount of unwanted farm-plastics left in-field when farmers replace old products with new Netafim irrigation. That’s why, since 2006, Netafim has offered an end-of-life recycling program. We advise and assist our clients to safely and efficiently recoil old driplines using one of our Netafim Recoilers, we then freight recoiled dripline to our recycling partners across Australia and New Zealand. Finally, we work closely with selected recycling partners and purchase recycled resin derived from old dripline where it meets our stringent quality controls; we then use this in making new drip line and other irrigation products, reducing our reliance on fossil-fuel derived resins. No other irrigation manufacturer has yet committed to such an end-to-end approach.
We call it Recoil and we are committed to continually striving to close the loop and developing our own sustainable circular economy for the good of our customers and the environment.
The Recoil program is a simple 5-Step process to remove unwanted/used drip line from the field. While there are slight variations based on your location we have streamlined the process to make it easy, inexpensive and efficient for the good of our environment.
The grower completes a Recoil Request Form.
Netafim will arrange for one of our Recoil retrieval machines to the client's Netafim Dealer store.
Using the Netafim Recoiler retrieval machine, the grower recoils the used or unwanted drip line.
Once all the drip line is recoiled, Netafim will arrange for collection and transport to our recyclers.
Netafim will provide a Certificate of Recycling once your drip line has been recycled.
Netafim is committed to offering a recycling service for the good of our growers and our environment, however there are significant costs involved in retrieving and recycling field-waste material. While Netafim subsidises the cost of the retrieval machinery, freight and recycling process, there is a small freight component that needs to be paid by the grower. Prices vary by region and are charged at cost, based on a per kilogram basis. For a list of prices please contact our Recoil Coordinator via email at email@example.com or call +61(0)452 537 266.
