Returns Service

What do you do with used thread protectors? Do you put them to landfill? That is a costly exercise. And environmentally damaging. Most operators in the North Sea use Norkram as an alternative to landfill.

Not only is it a more cost effective way to dispose of thread protectors, but it also guarantees that none of them go to landfill. You can rest assured that they will either be reused or recycled.

  • Containers are emptied by our operators
  • Contents are sorted by:
    • Connection Type
    • Size
    • Colour
