Hi, my name is Ruben Guzman a utility contractor I have lots of old Water line from 4″ to 16″ (DR18 C900 CL 150). Is this type of pipe recycable?

    Hi Ruben. After doing some research I found that your water line is made from PVC. PVC can be recycled but only in a special facility. Regular recycling centers do not like PVC because it has chemicals that contaminate regular plastic. PVC also takes a huge amount of energy to separate the recyclable material from the un-recyclable material.

    I don’t know where you live but you could do an internet search for PVC recycleing centers in your area. Otherwise you can try to find another use or someone else who wants them before you throw them away.
