Using drip tubing/hose or drip tape for irrigation is reliable, easy and convenient. With Netafim ReGen Recycling, getting rid of used irrigation tubing in an environmentally responsible way is just as reliable, easy and convenient. Our recycling and manufacturing operations create local jobs and boost our state economy. We are proud of protecting the environment through our recycling efforts while improving the quality of life for Californians.

ReGen Recycling, Inc.

Netafim ReGen Recycling is a wholly owned subsidiary of Netafim Irrigation, Inc

Netafim ReGen Recycling collects and manufactures new, recycled plastic irrigation tubing in California, right from your farm, which provides you with disposal convenience and cost savings. We recycle the used irrigation tubing/hose/tape to produce a recycled resin that is re-used in Agricultural, Mining and Landscape dripline applications. In the landscape, recycled content is critical for a number of sustainable building initiatives. The recycled resin also gets used in industrial products such as plastic pallets

Why Recycle Your Used Irrigation Tubing?

  • Taking used irrigation tubing/hose/tape to a landfill is costly
  • Burning and burying used irrigation tubing/hose/tape on your property has legal and environmental ramifications
  • Leaving used irrigation tubing/hose/tape above ground is unsightly and can create a safety hazard
  • Netafim Recycling will make arrangements and pick up your used irrigation tubing/hose/tape
