Kimberly-Clark Professional* Partners With TerraCycle to Help Customers Recycle Cleanroom Garments
Date:10/6/2011

ROSWELL, Ga., Oct. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kimberly-Clark Professional*, a global leader in contamination control solutions for laboratories and cleanrooms, and TerraCycle, a leading "upcycling" company, have joined forces to help pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities recycle cleanroom garments, including coveralls, hoods, boot covers, hair nets and masks.

Through the collaboration, Kimberly-Clark Professional will become among the first to implement a large scale recycling program for non-traditional cleanroom waste streams, and TerraCycle will make its first voyage into the business-to-business market.

"We are constantly looking to offer our customers innovations that will positively impact their productivity and profitability while preserving the environment," said Heather Torrey, Scientific Customer and Channel Marketing Manager, Global Scientific Business at Kimberly-Clark Professional.  "The recycling program with TerraCycle further extends our sustainability initiatives, saving time, materials and ultimately money."

"To partner with an industry leader like Kimberly-Clark Professional to launch our first business-to-business collection program is a fantastic opportunity," said Tom Szaky, Founder and CEO of TerraCycle. "Providing end-of-life solutions for previously difficult-to-recycle items from cleanrooms is an exciting new direction for TerraCycle and could have massive industry-wide impact."

Kimberly-Clark Professional customers can order this new recycling program through approved distributors.  The package for customers will have everything needed to start recycling, including shipping, shipping materials, training materials, and all return shipping of the recycling package.  TerraCycle will collect, convert and resell all waste materials as either bulk plastics or eco-friendly consumer products, and the company's bar code system will allow Kimberly-Clark Professional to track waste reduction and report that information back to each facility.
