Manufacturing and industrial facilities are home to various liquid waste and byproducts. If you don’t have manufacturing waste management solutions in place, you risk exposing employees and visitors to safety hazards and lost productivity. Continue reading this article to learn more about effective waste reduction methods and recycling innovations.
How To Reduce Waste in Manufacturing
Manufacturing waste presents itself in a variety of ways. Whether it’s plastic bottles or excess raw materials, the amount of waste is staggering. One of the most common and problematic manufacturing process elements is liquid waste.
Using reusable absorbents as a waste reduction method for substances like oil, lubricants, and hydraulic fluid keeps your workspace safer and minimizes your operations’ environmental impact.
Essential Waste Management Technology
A clean, safe work environment is critical to productivity. One of the easiest ways to contain liquid manufacturing waste is with an absorbent mat. Strategically placing mats under high spill and leak areas prevents foot traffic from spreading slick substances throughout your building, keeping it clean and safe.
Facility managers and workers can utilize different mats for the specific liquids commonly present at your facility. Oil-absorbent hydromats are especially effective for cleaning oil spills on any surface. Absorbent socks are designed with anti-trip elements, a low profile, and contain liquids near or against equipment. Additionally, they can handle oil, water-based, and other liquid waste.
Quilted mats absorb any liquid ranging from food oils to coolants. Quilted mats are ideal if you rely on a waste management technology solution for quick absorption. Poly absorbent mats come in various thicknesses and sizes, are versatile, long-lasting, and absorb any non-hazardous liquids they come in contact with.
The more frequently workers have to stop to find something to clean up oily waste or other troublesome liquids, the less work they’re getting done. Industrial shop T-rags are perfect for handling small leaks and other liquid problems that otherwise cut into production.
Best of all, white and mixed T-rags are all-purpose, practical, and perfect for wiping up oil, water, fluids, and grease.
It’s hard to think of a more practical but simple waste management technology than the towel. They are a great way to clean up drips and spills and an easy way to prevent liquids from ever reaching the floor.
White and red shop towels are the ideal manufacturing waste solutions for quickly cleaning up small spills, tools, and wiping down machinery. The coarse texture of red towels allows workers to clean their hands off before sensitive surfaces.

Combining Manufacturing Waste and Recycling Innovations
Industry-leading industrial textile cleaning and recycling companies leverage recycling technology and waste reduction methods to deliver a cleaning and reusing solution. Using an innovative process, Closed Loop Recycling takes your used, saturated, and dirty absorbents, personal protective equipment, and storage drums and thoroughly cleans them for recycling and reuse purposes.
Disposing of absorbent materials requires compliance with strict regulations. Laundering and recycling services remove the burden of meeting those standards and significantly reduce manufacturing waste and costs. Our cleaning and recycling system includes transporting and washing all your absorbents. We also responsibly dispose of any that have reached the end of usability.
Our waste reduction methods are a green solution as well. By cleaning and reusing absorbent technology, you reduce the amount of manufacturing waste in landfills and the need to produce more disposable materials.
