Trek begins carbon recycling program

Originally posted on April 21, 2011 at 11:00 am

Trek has instituted a new recycling program at its Waterloo, Wisconson, manufacturing facility for all the scrap carbon fiber created by domestic production. Trek has been building with carbon since 1992.

Discarded trimmings, damaged frames and other parts are collected by Trek and sent to Materials Innovation Technologies, a South Carolina-based company that specializes in recycling carbon fiber.

Though most Trek bicycles are now built overseas, some high-end and prototype production is still handled in its Wisconson hometown.
