Kimberly-Clark Professional™ Expands The RightCycle™ Programme to the Netherlands and Switzerland

May 11 2023

Now available in 11 countries across Europe and North America

Kimberly-Clark Professional, a global leader in contamination control solutions for cleanrooms and laboratories, has expanded The RightCycle Programme to the Netherlands and Switzerland.

The RightCycle Programme is the first large-scale recycling effort for non-hazardous lab, cleanroom and industrial personal protective equipment (PPE) waste. The programme collects previously hard-to-recycle PPE such as garments, masks and gloves. These items are then recycled by regional partners that create new plastic pellets, which are used to produce new consumer products.

Originating in the US, The RightCycle Programme is now available in 11 countries. Since 2011, it has helped hundreds of customers divert more than 2,000 metric tons of PPE waste.

In 2021, the programme was expanded in Europe to include the recycling of plastic dispensers and hand towels in a few select countries. This will provide Kimberly-Clark Professional with an even greater opportunity to reduce its environmental footprint in collaboration with its customers.
