    Valutek Helps Customers Reach Sustainability and Cost-savings Goals with TerraCycle® Zero Waste Boxes

    Today’s cleanrooms in research and manufacturing facilities often use single-use consumables such as gloves, bouffant caps, and garments. While this single-use approach is necessary to maintain cleanliness standards and process requirements, the global demand for sustainable options for cleanroom consumables continues to grow. As part of our commitment to sustainability, Valutek partners with TerraCycle to offer recycling solutions for single-use cleanroom consumables.



    Over 4 billion gloves are purchased and discarded each year worldwide!



    Who is TerraCycle?

    TerraCycle is a global recycling service provider, offering recycling solutions for waste streams that are not typically considered recyclable. Cleanroom gloves and apparel once sent to a landfill are now able to be collected, sorted, cleaned, and re-processed into usable materials for manufacturing companies who breathe new life into these used products.

    From garments to gloves, to face masks and hair/beard nets, the TerraCycle Zero Waste Boxes provide a sustainable solution for the disposal of these single-use products.
