As an environmentally conscious company, Seco offers a recycling service for used carbide products to all our existing customers and other users of cemented carbide.

Because Seco considers the environment, safety and quality to be important aspects of the products and services we provide, our Seco Used Carbide Recycling Program is designed to demonstrate our personal commitment to our customers to deliver winning solutions that encourage a cleaner environment and a safer workplace, support sustainable processes, and generate a return for the customer.

It's also very easy to use.

Seco will recycle ANY carbide -- inserts, mills, drills, bars, anvils, and more --  but no steel, ceramic or cermet.  We accept any amount of carbide from any manufacturer.  The price depends on the market, and the total payment is based on used carbide price at the time of receipt by Seco.

YOU GET A GOOD PRICE FOR YOUR RECYCLABLE CARBIDE

There is money in your used cemented carbide products and Seco has made it easier than ever before to recycle them. As part of our worldwide recycling program, we purchase your used tools and pay you based on its current market value.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Upon return, the used carbide will be sorted and weighed, and you will be paid by check.

Seco will also supply you with containers for collecting and shipping used carbide -- free!
