CLR’s industrial absorbent recycling solutions produce clean oil-absorbent materials, save you money, and make a positive impact on the environment.
The Benefits of Reusable Absorbents
Recycling reusable absorbents is positively impactful on the environment, and it also improves your business’s budget.
Let’s say you don’t recycle and run a manufacturing facility. As a production facilitator, you’re in charge of purchasing your staff’s protective materials like gloves, sleeves and safety vests—a massive inventory cost. But by taking advantage of a laundering and recycling program, you could eliminate the cost of purchasing new inventory. When you utilize an industrial laundering service, you may take on a cleaning service fee, but you save money in the long run.
A Positive Environmental Impact
It’s clear that disposable gloves and face masks are becoming a part of our daily ensemble. For manufacturing and production employees, PPE like cut-resistant gloves and sleeves have long been a constant during daily activities. But once a glove gets grease or oil on it, glove–wearers are casting them off, causing waste buildup on beaches and at parks. More than 13,000 pounds of trash were picked up at Cocoa Beach in Florida last year. The trash pileup was a result of beaches opening after months of lockdown due to the COVID-19.
By investing in an industrial laundering service, you make a positive environmental impact, reducing the number of disposable materials ending up on beaches and in oceans.
Recycling also helps you achieve your business’s green initiatives, offering proper solutions for disposable materials and giving you alternative producSavet solutions, including reusable absorbents.
CLR’s Industrial Laundering Services
Closed Loop Recycling’s process for industrial laundering services includes oil-absorbent mats, shop towels, and rags. Our services also include personal protective equipment (PPE), such as aprons, gloves, and safety vests.
- As-Needed PPE Services (for small users)
- Vendor-Managed, scheduled PPE service (for large users)
- As-Needed absorbent or rag Service (for small users)
- Vendor-Managed, scheduled absorbent or rag service (for large users)
We start by scheduling and conducting a phone call to understand your recycling needs. Then, our territory manager schedules a time to go to your facility to drop off collection drums where you’ll store your used products. Once the drum is full, CLR picks up and takes the items to our facility. When recycling is complete, we return the laundered products.
Closed Loop Recycling’s Minimal Liquid Discharge (MLD) laundering process has been audited and approved by more than 700 manufacturing clients nationwide, often referring to our process as “elegant in its simplicity” by a former member of the EPA. CLR’s MLD process is environmentally friendly, allowing us to operate without a wastewater treatment permit or EPA ID. Without permit restrictions, the onboarding process for our new clients is a breeze. Our process is a prime example of our third core value: Reinvent the Industry!
CLR has spent years optimizing our process to guarantee that wastewater from our industrial laundering services does not go down the drain, eliminating any liability for our clients that a typical industrial launderer may carry. Our proprietary laundering process utilizes an environmentally friendly detergent with no harmful VOCs, ensuring that residual, hazardous solvents do not end up in our reusable mats. All fluids recovered from the absorbent products are recycled and reused by an EPA-approved refinery. This revolutionary new process is one of the leading factors that has contributed to our impressive growth. Contact us today to learn more about our industrial laundering services.
