Our PPE to POWER mailback service allows us to keep our employees safe during material processing while also helping generate energy to power over one million homes.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) December 04, 2020
A Chicago-area specialty recycler has launched a sustainable and innovative solution for personal protective equipment (PPE) such as disposable masks and gloves to help keep them out of the landfill. These items land in the trash because they simply do not seem like the kind of items that can be recycled due to the different product types encompassed in the catchall phrase of PPE.
g2 revolution’s PPE to POWER mailback recovery program provides an alternative to the landfill for these harder to recycle items utilizing a process known as waste-to-energy (WTE). The WTE process converts waste that is unable to go through standard recycling channels into energy, often electricity for homes and businesses. The WTE process provides a stronger, greener story for businesses that desire to keep PPE out of the landfill and oceans.
“When developing a new circular solution g2 leads with compliance and innovation,” says Tonya Martin, VP of Business Development for g2 revolution. “Our PPE to POWER mailback service allows us to keep our employees safe during material processing while also helping to generate energy to power over one million homes. This provides an excellent alternative to landfill.”
According to the U.S. EPA, for every ton of municipal solid waste processed at WTE facilities, greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by approximately one ton. This process is a more sustainable way to deal with PPE that is oftentimes constructed with different materials in one single item or vary in material type depending on the brand.
The PPE to POWER mailback service is open to small and medium businesses through the g2 online store as well as Enterprise businesses that can be customized for multiple locations. Each participating business will also receive a Certificate of Recycling from g2 revolution once their collection container has been processed that outlines the total weight of PPE items they have successfully diverted from the landfill.
Custom enterprise programs are available by contacting the g2 team on their website. On-demand recycling services for small and medium businesses, including PPE to POWER, are available at: shop.g2rev.com
