Kimberly-Clark program gives new life to cleanroom garb

Kimberly-Clark and TerraCycle have teamed up to recycle pharma manufacturing consumables that are normally slated for disposal after one-time use: cleanroom garments. TerraCycle will collect coveralls, hoods, boot covers, hair nets and masks. It will convert and resell the materials as either bulk plastics or eco-friendly consumer products.

K-C customers join the program through approved distributors. Drugmakers that sign up receive collateral materials and services for use in-house: shipping, shipping materials, training materials and return shipping of the recycling package.  

A Terracycle bar-code tracking system allows K-C to monitor waste reduction and to report back to each drugmaker facility.
