Can a Polycaged IBC Tank Be Recycled?

A polycaged IBC tank can be recycled. This is because they are commonly made of high-density polyethylene. This material can be cut into shards that can be made into new containers. The steel grid around the IBC tank can also be recycled although it is typically reused for new containers. 

Preparing Polycaged IBC Tanks for Recycling

To prepare these plastic tanks for recycling, consumers will need to clean the polycaged IBC tank out. Consumers should also have the certification plate with the tank so it can be properly sorted through at the recycling center. 

How IBC Tanks are Recycled

To be recycled, polycaged IBC tanks are sent through a machine that cuts the tanks into fragments. Once this is done, the fragments are washed. The pieces are then sorted through and rolled into a hot pot where they are melted down. 

Where to Send Polycaged IBC Tanks for Recycling

Most polycaged IBC tanks can be sent to the container’s manufacturer who will then recycle the tanks. IBC tank producers tend to provide free pick-up services for recycling. This helps businesses to save time and money. There are also special IBC tank recycling centers that focus on collecting and recycling these tanks. If these options are unavailable, polycaged IBC tanks can also be sent to landfills. 

Using Recycled IBC Tanks

Recycled polycaged IBC tanks can also be bought. These options tend to be more affordable compared to new IBC tanks. Despite once being used, they are still durable and are ecological.
