Businesses in the U.S. produce millions of tons of waste each year, and many of them send their waste directly to the landfill. What these companies don’t know is that recycling doesn’t just help the environment—it improves their business as well. At Closed Loop Recycling, we prioritize protecting the environment through recycling and sustainability efforts.
Recycling Supplies in the Workplace
Recycling can mean many things. You can send off plastics, paper, and metal to recycling companies to process and reuse, but you can also recycle and reuse common workplace equipment. CLR cleans many of the items employees use daily to stay safe before repackaging and redistributing them for further use.
Recycling materials is a great way to protect the environment and save money on disposable products. It also allows you to operate a sustainable workplace. Sustainability is the act of using resources without depleting their supply for future generations. By avoiding buying new items and using recycled items for far longer than you would normally use them, you reduce your resource use. At CLR, we don’t just recycle your supplies; we help you achieve sustainability in your business.
We offer various recycling solutions for your workplace, and we specialize in reusable absorbents and personal protective equipment (PPE). Our reusable items are high quality, durable, and effective. Incorporating these items into your workplace can save you money on new gear, improve efficiency, and help maintain a safe working environment.
Incorporating Reusable Oil Absorbents
Oil is an item that employees frequently spill in the workplace, especially in industrial and automotive settings. When you improperly discard oil, it wreaks havoc on the environment. By partnering with CLR for reusable oil absorbent mats, rags, and wipers, you can turn your discarded oil into asphalt or fuel and keep it from damaging the earth.
CLR collects your oil absorbent pads, cleans them, recycles the oil, and repackages the pads for further use. Plus, we don’t create any waste during the process. Our absorbent products are also more durable than their disposable counterparts. You can save time on oil spill cleanup while protecting the environment.
Laundering Industrial PPE
Many industries require their employees to use PPE to avoid injuries in the workplace. These items degrade over time, especially when they’re not cleaned properly. With a good cleaning routine, your items can last significantly longer than their expected lifespan. CLR collects, launders, and returns your safety vests, aprons, gloves, and cut-resistant sleeves to keep them in circulation for as long as possible.
By cleaning and reusing your PPE gear, you can save money on new items and keep your existing ones in excellent condition. CLR takes used textiles that would usually end up in waste disposal plants and removes liquids, metals, and other debris for safe reuse.
Reusing Spill Control Mats
Spills are inevitable for many businesses. When oil, water, coolant, or other fluids start spreading, you have to act fast to contain the spill and prevent slip-and-fall accidents. There are plenty of disposable spill control mat options out there that businesses throw out after a single use, but there are even better reusable options.
CLR offers recyclable spill absorbent socks and mats that quickly soak up liquids and improve your workplace safety. After use, we recycle mats by pulling out absorbed liquids and repackaging the mats for a new customer. Our mats are more durable and absorbent than disposable options, and they reduce your carbon footprint.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
Though recycling is at the heart of our business, CLR takes a multifaceted approach towards helping the environment. We encourage companies to avoid buying new items, which reduces their waste. Then, we help them reuse the equipment they already have. Finally, by extending the lifespan of their products, we keep items out of landfills. These three steps allow businesses to reduce their environmental impact.
Many business owners assume that sustainability initiatives are expensive and won’t make a difference in their operations. However, companies that utilize our recycling services see improved operational efficiency and significant cost savings. A partnership with CLR will increase productivity and sustainability without hurting your budget.
