Supra cable products are designed and manufactured with the environment in mind.
And as the company has been based in Sweden since it's inception over 30 years
ago, it will come as no surprise that Supra recognised it's responsibilities long
ago and that it meets all statutory and moral requirements when it comes to the
procurement and use of raw materials.
As such Supra fully adheres to the RoHS specification for all of it's products.
All by-products from production, as well as natural waste are sorted and collected
Supra products need to be kept clean and tidy from the moment they leave the factory
to the time they arrive in the store.
The items also need to packed so that they can be examined to ensure that they
will suit your particular needs.
As such, cable products and accessories are packed in plastic "blister packs",
which ensure that the product is in tip-top condition, when you get it home.
For recycling purposes, the rear side of Supra blister packs may be marked
as follows (to aid recognition of the type of plastic used):
Blister is made from PolyEthylene Terephthalate - the same as is used for clear
drinks bottles such as water and soft drinks. Identified by the figure 1 inside
the recycling symbol.
Blister is made from High-Density PolyEthylene - the same as is used mainly for
"cloudy" milk bottles, also juice and detergents Identified by
the figure 2 inside the recycling symbol.
(There is a useful and topical article on the BBC
website concerning a new plastic bottle recycling centre which has opened
We normally recommend that the blister packs and inner packaging are retained
for future use: for instance if you upgrade later and sell the cable to a third-party.
- If you choose to dispose of the blister pack, then you can include this with any
plastic bottles you return for recycling.
- The header card can be recycled with
your cardboard or paper recycling.
- The blue insert "card" is made of plastic and can be returned
to us (by 2nd class post). We will make a contribution to a local charity
for each blue card returned.
It is our understanding that "cables" are generally exempt from WEEE
However, if you have a Supra cable which has come to the end of it's useful life
and you wish to dispose of it, you can either:
- take it to your nearest domestic recycling centre - most now have a separate
skip for wires and/or metal.
- take it back to the retailer who supplied it originally.
- send it back to us for recycling.
