Eaton has improved its return and recycling program for plastic reels used to ship hose products from the company’s Hydraulics Operations to its North American distributors. Distributors now can return empty hose reels to a central location where they will be evaluated for reuse or recycling, depending on their condition. Reusable reel assemblies are then returned to Eaton facilities in the U.S. and Canada. The plastic hose reels are said to be both safer and lighter than the wooden reels they replace and create a greener, more sustainable operation with less environmental impact. Distributors are requested to disassemble and palletize 22 or 28 in (560 or 710 mm) reels prior to pickup and are encouraged to reuse original packaging to further reduce environmental effect.
