Wetsuit Recycling

Bring your old neoprene wetsuits to us at Tangaroa Watersports, Broad St Parade, Barry, CF627AN

We work with a local company based in South Wales to reuse, repurpose & recycle old neoprene wetsuits which normally end up in landfill along with almost 8000 tonnes of end of life wetsuits globally.

Neoprene is a petroleum based non biodegradable product that has previously been very difficult to recycle but is now used for many projects from making yoga mats to soft surfaces in playgrounds – so don’t bin it bring it to us.
