Zero Waste Box

Recycling Option for Safety Equipment

Zero Waste BoxNorthstar Recycling helps businesses avoid the landfill by providing recycling solutions for all types of waste including safety equipment — the Safety Equipment and Protective Gear Zero Waste Box from TerraCycle.

By offering the Zero Waste Box, Northstar allows its clients to recycle safety equipment that would otherwise be thrown away.

Accepted safety and protective gear include used earplugs, beard nets, hair nets, gloves and safety glasses. All waste collected is repurposed. Metals are smelted for recycling and plastics are molded into new plastic products, such as park benches and recycling bins.

Aligning with Northstar’s objectives as a Zero Landfill company, TerraCycle, an international recycling and upcycling company, aims to eliminate the idea of waste. TerraCycle offers Zero Waste Boxes for all categories of waste so that businesses can reduce the amount of waste they throw away.

Businesses can purchase the Safety Equipment Zero Waste Boxes through Northstar’s recycling services. Once a box is received and filled with appropriate waste, it is shipped back to TerraCycle for processing, using the pre-affixed shipping label. The shipping and processing costs are included in the price of the box.

One thought on “Recycling Option for Safety Equipment

  1. As a company which sells large quantities of hazmat outfits and other protective garments, I can tell you that none of our customers have ever asked us if these can be recycled. The article, however, doesn’t make it clear whether these boxes but the recycle equipment in have to be ordered and if so, how much they cost.
