We live in a “reuse, reduce, and recycle” world. What we don’t need, don’t use, and don’t want can be either used again, used in less quantity to avoid excess waste, or placed in the recycle bin and later repurposed.
When it comes to commercial hoses or any type of hose for that matter, many people wonder how to properly get rid of them. Do you simply toss them in the garbage bin? Can they be recycled?
ASJ Hose not only wants you to not only have quality commercial hoses to use safely and effectively for your field of work, but we want also want you to know the best ways to get rid of your old hoses. How you dispose of older hoses can have an impact on the environment after all.
Learn how to dispose your old, worn-out commercial hoses below.
Options for Disposing Commercial Hoses
Here are some correct ways to get rid of your older hoses:
- Take them to a recycling center. (Note: Recycling centers won’t accept hoses if they’re of a certain shape and/or material, but it’s worth a shot.)
- Hose itself not recyclable? Cut off the metal parts of your hose to recycle at a scrap metal recycling facility.
- Donate it to a secondhand store (e.g., Goodwill) – with their permission, of course.
- Turn your old house into something new (e.g., home décor, soaker hose, etc.).
In the end, there isn’t necessarily one correct way to dispose your old hoses. However, one thing is for sure: you won’t want to recycle your old hose if it isn’t made of a recyclable material nor will you want to merely toss your hose on the side of the road. Be responsible; the environment depends on you!
