Tri-Star’s recovery program consists of an environmentally friendly “cradle-to-grave” solution that meets the EPA’s recommended practice for OCTG product disposal. We help oil companies keep their well sites clean, and we help the environment by keeping thousands of tons of plastic out of landfills each year.Schedule a Pick Up
Our Recovery Service Program offers a clean, safe solution for the oil company and/or drilling contractor responsible for the disposal/recycling of thread protectors that are no longer needed.
This program covers the following:
To ensure the traceability of all generated protectors, a numbered location thread protector pickup form includes:
Place all thread protectors that are considered waste items into the bin provided.
Materials are then transported to Tri-Star’s facility. Each incoming shipment is weighed, generating a scale ticket that details the tonnage quantity of protectors to be recycled. The recycled material is cleaned to remove all grease and contaminants.
Finally, protectors are sorted into two categories:
All participating companies are then given full documentation and traceability for all spent thread protectors.
It is always better to recycle than landfill, and this program offers several environmental benefits. The documentation and tonnage recycle reports can be used in internal and government environmental and waste reduction programs.
If your application doesn’t need a new protector, use one of our inspected reconditioned protectors for even more savings. We have the largest inventory of reconditioned products in the industry, covering tubing, casing, drill pipe for API and premium connections ranging from 2 3/8" and up.Learn More
