Reconditioned steel drums are one of the most environmentally friendly sustainable packaging solutions, especially for companies that need to use and discard a high quantity of steel drums yearly.
With our reconditioned steel drums, you not only get a product that’s just as good as a brand-new drum (but for a better price), you’ll also be helping the environment, and here’s how:
They’re a Sustainable Packaging Solution
Much like with corrugated cardboard boxes, reconditioned steel drums are made entirely from recycled materials, meaning they are an excellent sustainable packaging solution.
When it comes to determining whether or not a product is eco-friendly, one of the best methods is to check if it’s made from sustainable materials. Considering that there is more steel recycled in a year than all other materials combined, it’s safe to say that reconditioned steel drums are exceptionally sustainable.
Saving Money Saves the Planet
Reconditioned steel drums typically cost significantly less than brand new steel drums, while still offering virtually the same levels of performance. Put simply, by using reconditioned steel drums, you’ll be able to save money and protect the environment, all without sacrificing the quality of your drums.
They Can Be Used Indefinitely
Reconditioned steel drums are already environmentally friendly thanks to being made from recycled materials, but their eco-friendliness is amplified even further by the fact that they can essentially be used indefinitely. A steel drum can go through the reconditioning process countless times and still be like new, continuing to maintain effectiveness for decades to come.
They Leave A Much Smaller Carbon Footprint
Because reconditioned steel drums are made using recycled steel, they are inherently less wasteful and environmentally taxing to construct than a brand new drum. They also use less resources and materials.
Overall, the process to recondition steel drums generates 68% less CO2 than what it takes to manufacture new ones.
They Meet UN Standards
Both new and reconditioned steel drums must go through a strict UN certification process in order to be deemed suitable for industrial use. This certification is internationally recognized as an indication of a drum’s quality and capacity to hold industrial or hazardous waste.
They’re Just As Good As New Steel Drums
Despite being constructed from recycled materials, reconditioned steel drums are just as good as new steel drums. Why create something new when the reconditioned product is just as durable, functional and long-lasting, not to mention better for the environment?
