Coaxial cable, commonly known as coax cable, is a type of shielded and insulated copper cable that is widely used in the transmission of video, communications and audio. Whatever you do, cables like these should never go in the rubbish bin once you are finished with them. They contain metals like copper that make them hazardous waste if they’re sent to landfill. Instead they should be considered for reuse, resale or coax cable recycling.


TXO’s coax cable recycling solutions for Telecom and Corporate clients

Our coax cable recycling solution here at TXO Systems means we can put cables and cords back into use as either re-used parts or as materials for new products, turning your business’ surplus cables into a lucrative and environmentally-friendly revenue stream. Many other types of cable are covered besides coax, such as data cables, fibre optic cables, copper cables, aluminium cables, lead coated and armoured cables. We have considerable expertise in recovering and recycling other forms of WEEE category 3: IT and telecommunications equipment too, such as printed circuit boards, back panels, motherboards, connectors and IC chips.
