Top 10 ways to Reuse, Recycle and Repurpose Old Cable Spools

Posted. 4th March 2019

You’ve probably seen these several times and maybe you have thought that they look interesting. Well, the great news is Cable Spools can be easily upcycled and repurposed and are just as versatile as the more commonly used wooden pallets. With some creativity and your time they can be made into coffee tables, planters, chairs, clocks and much more!

Reuse is so important because not only does it confront the challenges of waste reduction, reuse also sustains a comfortable quality of life and supports a productive economy. Reuse keeps goods and materials out of the waste stream, preserves the “embodied energy” that was originally used to manufacture an item and helps build towards a more circular economy as well as creating less landfill.
