Is Your PPE Recyclable? Ours Is!

Kimberly-Clark Professional is committed to leading the way to zero waste in landfills. That’s why we created The RightCycle™ Program — our industry-changing initiative that takes recycling personal protection equipment (PPE) to a new level. Instead of used PPE such as protective clothing, nitrile gloves and safety glasses going into the trash (and landfills), these previously hard-to-recycle items are collected at your facility and turned into new consumer goods.


Transparency in every step
