Closed Loop Recycling (CLR) recycles oil absorbents, wipers and PPE such as gloves, sleeves, aprons, and jackets. CLR specializes in turning these waste streams into three reusable products through their environmentally friendly laundering process.
CLR offers customized solutions, monthly reporting, and scheduled pickup and delivery for provided materials including 55-gallon drums in which to collect the used materials placed conveniently around the facility near the end users. CLR creates a custom plant layout and service strategy for each individual client to ensure the highest quality service.
CLR delivers materials and 55-gallon DOT approved collection drums at the facility for use. Once products are fully utilized, they are gathered and placed into the collection drums. Stations can be as simple as a couple drums labeled clean and dirty, to custom racks and distribution solutions built into existing tool cribs. The program is tailored to each facility’s needs. CLR’s customer service rep will utilize the plant layout to restock all clean products to predetermined levels as well as consolidate all collection drums for processing.
The fluids from the absorbents, wipers, and rags are extracted and transported by an EPA-approved oil recycler to a refinery, where it can be recycled as asphalt or industrial grade fuel. The products are then thoroughly laundered and inspected and then packaged and redistributed for future use. Drums are emptied, steam cleaned and conditioned for reuse according to DOT specifications. Recycling oil absorbents, wipers, and PPE not only helps the environment, it eliminates the need to continually purchase disposable products, and eliminates liability for disposal of these materials.
CLR bundles its products into one simple price, which includes:
- Reusable products – wipers, absorbents, rags, etc.
- Full facility service
