By providing only the highest quality safety wear recycling services, we greatly reduce environmental impact and increase the life of your PPE.

  • We maintain 100% compliance with all Federal environmental regulations. We dispose of all waste through a Federally Regulated Disposal Service.
  • Our services qualify as waste minimization (ISO)
  • Our services eliminate disposal-related liability
  • We use a state-of-the-art water treatment facility, further minimizing our impact on the local environment and our customers liability.
  • We recycle as much as possible, salvaging portions of gloves that, in some circumstances, can be used in a variety of other applications.
  • We are permitted through the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM).
  • Our chemicals are shipped and disposed of according to State and Federal Regulations.

We do not use the chemical Perchloroethylene (Perc), the drycleaning chemical solvent used in 85-90% of drycleaners. The U.S. Evironmental Protection Agency has been working to reduce the use of this solvent due to the harm it can cause to the environment and potential health risks.

For more information about Perc's role in the drycleaning process and the potential health risks associated with this dangerous chemical, visit this site - a great source of information from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's website.
