Piranha Propellers of San Luis Obispo, Calif., recruited 30 dealers and marinas to participate in a propeller recycling program with the goal of preserving the environment, keeping costs down and promoting responsible recreation.

Authorized Piranha recycling collection centers will now collect damaged propeller blades that the factory will recycle. Once blades are sent back to the factory, they will undergo a low-energy regrinding process, which will not compromise the material, according to Piranha.

To give boaters a cleaner propeller option, Piranha offers a 100 percent recyclable, non-corroding, composite modular propeller molded around an aluminum core. The strength of this combination provides lower unit protection without compromising performance, according to the company. Also, Piranha says the modular design allows boaters to replace damaged blades within minutes for less than the cost of repairs to metal propellers.

Piranha Propellers has been producing props for more than 20 years. The company offers propellers for outboards and sterndrives, ranging from 9.9-hp to 280-hp.
