Scott Direct launches PPE and workwear recycling service

The industrial and trade supplier, Scott Direct, has launched a new service for the secure collection and recycling of end-of-life workwear and PPE.

Rob Sayles, Managing Director at Scott Direct, said: “Used workwear and PPE can be a problematic and costly waste issue for businesses, but we can help you take responsibility with our secure textile and hard hat recycling services that solve the problem sustainably.”

He continued: “Based on a weekly collection using a 1100ltr bin option, a business could save more than 13,000 kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalent per year – it’s better for the environment, and better for your budget.”

The textile recycling service offers a range of bins sizes and uplift frequencies for the collection, recycling and secure end-of-life management of used clothing, uniforms, garments, and other textiles.

Hard hats are notoriously problematic and difficult to destroy once they’ve been used but can now be sent to Scott Direct for recycling. The hard hat recycling service ensures all of the plastic from end-of-life hard hats is fully recovered and recycled back into new plastic pellets. This is all done right here in the UK.

Scott Direct is also offering a glove laundry service which can provide huge cost savings, without compromising on safety. The quick and reliable laundry service aims to reduce the cost of purchasing new PPE and minimise the environmental impact of sending used PPE to landfill.

Rob continued: “Sustainability is integral to our core business values. It shapes the way we work across our operations in the UK and how we engage with our global supply chains. We aim to minimise the environmental impact of our products at each stage of their lifecycle and deliver innovative and sustainable solutions that promote circular economy principles, aiming for zero non-recovered waste.”

Scott Direct is a complete supplier to the industrial and trade markets. It offers customers a comprehensive range of quality products including hand and power tools, protective clothing, PPE, safety equipment, hygiene and janitorial supplies, workwear, corporate branded garments, MRO and engineering consumables, throughout the UK.
