Recycling your unusable PPE to landfill is costly and damages the environment. As this is no longer a sustainable option, we have developed an alternative PPE disposal solution for our customers.
WE CAN HELP YOU TO RECYCLE YOUR UNUSABLE PPE
Because we do our best to prolong the life of your PPE, ‘Glove and PPE washing for re-use’ is clearly a popular choice. As a result, we usually recover around 75% of gloves per wash.
When PPE is of no further use, our options include:
- Donating it to charity,
- Cutting it up for re-usable wiper rags
- Sending it for high temperature incineration (HTI).
Our disposal process for recycling PPE ensures that nothing we handle goes to landfill
Veolia’s HTI is authorised by the Environmental Agency (EA) under the IPPC provisions of the 1990 Environmental Protection Act.
Their Shrewsbury site is fully compliant with the Waste Incineration and Industrial Emissions Directives. As an industry leader, Veolia is certified to international standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001
Our batch analysis provides you with a transparent account of our processes. Because traceability is necessary for your waste management controls, we ensure that our disposal process is clear; this contributes to your continuous improvement KPIs. Furthermore, it also demonstrates the number of gloves used in a particular operation which could aid the potential for changing to more durable hand protection. We count every glove so you know exactly how many pairs we collect, deliver back, and scrap.
