With so many salons forced to invest in mass amounts of PPE, such as gloves, gowns and masks, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the potential waste increase could be massive.
However, Green Circle Salons, who provide recycling solutions for salon waste, have recently launched a PPE Recovery Initiative, designed to help salon owners reduce the environmental impact of the new sanitary requirements that have been put in place.
Through the program, salons will be able to safely and easily dispose of masks, face shields, gloves, disposable capes and gowns, disinfectant wipes and paper towels.
All materials will be processed and used to create clean, renewable energy that powers homes and businesses, while the leftover ash from this process can be used as filler in asphalt and various construction items such as brick.
