Used refill inserts and unwanted tip racks can be collected and recycled instead of going into the bin, and as the TipOne pipette tip system is made entirely from polypropylene there's no need to sort your waste. All we ask is that a reasonably large amount of recycling is gathered before we collect it - after all, it would defeat the 'Green' objective to put our trucks on the road otherwise.
We would like to emphasize that your collected polypropylene is not used for the production of neither pipette tips nor racks.
It is granulated first and then reused for less sensitive tools than pipette tips. This is a procedure refered to as “material recycling”.

RECYCLING CERTIFICATE - granulate, not waste!
It is also very important to note that Starlab is performing a ‘material recycling’ in contrast to ‘thermal recycling’ when the collected matrials are simply burnt.
