SMD Tray Return/Recycle

(1/1)

Mats@Multiguard:
Hey,

Does anyone have any tip on what to do with empty SMD trays?
Do you just throw them away or do you return them somewhere for reuse?
Im working for a PCB manufacturer, and as time goes by we have about 350 trays stored. Seems like a shame to throw them away.

what are they made from ? sometimes the type of plastic is stamped on it as a code to guide recyclers on what to do with it. However, you might post some picture and we could suggest re-use options. There are often people who want storage trays for all kinds of things. You might also look for recycle and re-use networks in your area. 'freecycle' is a name of one, can't recall where it is though.

nctnico:
We have bins for plastic nowadays so they end up in that bin. I'm sure they can be recycled.

They can even be reused. I used to keep em handy to break in pieces to hand out samples.
