SPARTANBURG, S.C. — May 19, 2016 — Leigh Fibers Inc. has announced it will be the recycling partner for Cintas’ new Uniform Recycling Service. This new program will facilitate the safe disposal of out-of-service uniforms that normally end up in landfills. This service allows a company to securely recycle worn and unusable uniforms and offer new life to the materials rather than throwing them in the trash. Don Bockoven, president of Leigh Fibers said: “We are very excited and proud to become Cintas’ recycling partner in this first of its kind national program. Our goal has always been to use reclaimed materials in the manufacturing of our products and to divert as much textile material as possible from our landfills.”
Not only does this new process save the environment from tons of bulky textiles in landfills but it also provides the customer with brand protection. The uniforms are securely managed, completely destroyed and recycled into fibers to be used in the manufacture of other products. The customer is provided with documents for Chain of Custody, a Certificate of Destruction and the number of pounds that have been diverted from the landfill.
After the shredded uniforms are reclaimed, Leigh Fibers recycles the destroyed uniforms into products used in the automotive industry, as well as several other end uses.
