Recycling Rope

We are launching an initiative for accepting old polyester and nylon rope for recycling.

We are making it a local service to ensure that the carbon cost of transporting the rope to us does not outweigh the benefit.

We will collect and store your old unwanted ropes at our Chandlery in Beer until there is a sufficient quantity to efficiently return to LIROS Ropes for recycling.

Join our scheme

The scheme is open to everyone, individual sailors and clubs.

Are you a member of a Sailing or Yacht club in the South West of England?   Here is how you can help!

  1. Talk to your club organisers about supporting our scheme
  2. Organise a collection point at your club
  3. Contact us and we will send you a poster to advertise your rope collection point
  4. Once you have a large enough quantity of rope, organise someone to make the drop at our Chandlery in Beer, East Devon.

Where will the ropes go?

Our main Rope Manufacturer LIROS, actively recycles ropes and grades the materials for reuse in other products.
