Kimberly-Clark Professional is encouraging businesses to reduce the environmental impact of their washrooms by extending its RightCycle Programme to include used hand towels and old dispensers, as well as PPE. Since its launch 10 years ago, the recycling scheme has diverted over 1,500 tonnes of previously hard-to-recycle, non-hazardous PPE from landfill and incineration.
By extending this scheme, Kimberley-Clark is hoping to give hand towels and dispensers a second life as recycled products. To be eligible for the RightCycle Programme for hand towels, any UK organisation must be using, or switch to, Kimberly-Clark Professional hand towels. The RightCycle Programme for dispensers is open to UK organisations with more than 100 customer-owned dispensers.
