Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is functional to your day-to-day operations. So, it is not unsurprising…
While PPE is necessary for protecting your employees, it can result in high company costs and waste. During the COVID-19 pandemic alone, hospitals nationwide spent more than $3 billion on PPE.
At Bates Enterprises, we can help with PPE recycling and industrial laundering services that save money, streamline operations, and protect the environment.
Can You Recycle Your PPE?
PPE waste often comes from single-use items, but even reusable PPE can cause an issue. PPE is usually made from complex materials that can make recycling difficult, leading to companies throwing them out with their general waste instead.
Although it can be difficult to determine, PPE can often be recycled. With Bates Enterprises, we provide some excellent reasons to recycle your company’s PPE and some practical benefits.
Why Recycle PPE?
Recycling your company’s PPE helps your company to reduce waste. As a result, your company can achieve considerable cost savings, reducing the amount you have to pay for waste removal and processing service. Recycling your PPE allows you to eliminate your disposal-related liability, remain involved in a PERC-free program, and improve your standing with the EPA and other local or regional environmental enforcement organizations.
Additionally, eco-conscious values are also becoming increasingly important. Global consumers are more eco-friendly than ever and are always looking for companies to help them meet their green goals. Recycling your PPE shows that your company cares about protecting the environment.
How PPE Is Recycled
Recycling can give PPE items such as gloves new life, so they don’t need to be thrown away. As experts in caring for PPE that sees a lot of wear and tear, we know how to launder various items to extend their lifespan. But if they wear out, we ensure they can find a new place elsewhere. By making repairs and recycling in other ways, we can ensure that none of it goes to waste. We use a federally regulated disposal service to ensure we remain entirely compliant with all environmental regulations.
