Kimberly-Clark diverts six tons of waste from landfills

Nov '16
In partnership with both, the Illinois Sustainable Technology Centre (ISTC) at the University of Illinois and Purdue University, a programme called RightCycle from Kimberly-Clark Professional has diverted almost six tons of waste from landfills. The program turns used lab gloves and garments into shelving, flowerpots, and lawn and garden furniture.

The RightCycle programme from Kimberly-Clark Professional is the first large-scale recycling program for non-hazardous lab and industrial waste and has diverted more than 350 metric tons of waste from landfills, since its inception in 2011.

According to Kimberly-Clark, the number of customers participating in the program has significantly increased, from just a handful at the start to almost 200 as of July 2016.

Kimberly-Clark Professional is continuing to expand the program, bringing it to Western Europe and exploring expansion into other regions. (AR)
