The Corning® Recycle Now! Program

Corning® pipet tip racks are designed to be reusable, withstanding several autoclave cycles. However, if you prefer to dispose of the racks after use, you can reduce environmental waste by recycling your used tip racks.
With Corning’s Recycle Now! program, you simply place the empty used tip racks into a carton or box, affix a mailing label (supplied by your Corning Account Manager) and mail. There is no charge to you, and you’ll be helping Corning take positive action to help conserve our natural resources.

If you would like to recycle with Corning, please contact your Corning Account Manager for mailing labels and additional information.
