The automotive industry deals with spills that need to be cleaned and working hazards that require protection.
Closed Loop Recycling is the answer.

The automotive industry has many different uses for recyclable materials. They use different absorbents to take care of spills around the workplace and personal protective equipment (PPE) to mitigate any risks that may be encountered during your job. Preventing injury or illness is a high priority in any business, as is saving money, and CLR offers solutions to each of those points.

What Is PPE in Automotive?

First and foremost, you need a grasp on PPE for your automotive business. Which PPE is best for the job though? No need to worry; CLR handles distribution, delivery, and recycling for a variety of PPE products, including:

  • Gloves: Working on vehicles all day means you need to get up close and personal with different types of machinery. Keeping your hands safe while welding or making repairs is necessary to keep workers safe.
  • Sleeves: Welding sleeves are almost as essential as gloves and keep your auto shop clear of any accidents. They’re also fully recyclable, so your auto mechanics won’t need new sleeves every few months.
  • Aprons: Fire-resistant aprons offer a safe solution to welding that protects the user from sparks, metals, or flammable materials. They also pair well with other PPE, including gloves and sleeves.
  • Jackets: A fire-resistant jacket helps avoid workplace hazards such as fire or stray metal shards that come from welding or vehicle work. The occupational safety and health of your workers is key to success, so properly investing in them helps you tremendously.
  • Safety Vests: Better safe than sorry! A fire-resistant safety vest keeps your workers protected from stray sparks, metals, and other dangerous materials that could cause them harm.

With the right PPE, automotive workshops become safer and more efficient. Safety risks are mitigated and your workers can focus on providing excellent service. All the PPE that CLR offers is part of our recycling solutions as well. Our PPE recycling process extracts metals and other materials that are ingrained in your PPE, while also removing liquids that have stained the fabrics. Anything extracted is recycled and your PPE is good as new.

Shop Absorbents

When you’re in an automotive shop, there are a lot of spills and liquids to deal with. Having absorbents on hand to handle these spills is ideal for keeping your workspace clean and safe. CLR offers a variety of absorbents to choose from, which range from red shop towels to T-rags and beyond. We provide storage options so you don’t have absorbents lying around the shop. We also have recycling services that can return these absorbents to you as though they were brand new, at about half the cost of buying a new batch. This miracle method to recycling is called Minimal Liquid Discharge and is a staple of our services.

Minimal Liquid Discharge

Our team specializes in industrial textiles with a specific focus on helping businesses meet their green initiatives by recycling. The Minimal Liquid Discharge process is one of the main steps behind achieving these green initiative goals. CLR takes your used mats, rugs, and towels, launders them like new, and gives them back to you for future use.

With CLR’s MLD process, you’re getting recycled products and recycled liquid. We thoroughly clean your PPE, and we also extract the liquid and clean it for reuse. This means you receive clean assets and fresh liquids with every shipment. This process saves you money on buying new disposable materials and industrial liquids such as coolant and oil.

Closed Loop Recycling takes the standard idea of recycling and enhances it. When you need services that think outside the drum, you need CLR.
