Kimberly-Clark Expands RightCycle Recycling Program

June 23, 2022 Kimberly-Clark Expands RightCycle Recycling Program

Kimberly-Clark Professional™ has expanded its RightCycle™ Program to include recycling of used plastic packaging.

Kimberly-Clark’s recycling program will now accept flex-film plastic packaging from Kimtech™ and KleenGuard™ products. In addition to plastic packaging waste, The RightCycle Program collects previously hard-to-recycle personal protective equipment (PPE) such as garments, masks, gloves, and goggles. Since it was established in 2011, the initiative has helped more than 900 customers divert over 3.7 million pounds of waste.

“This is a significant step in addressing a challenging waste stream that currently has very low recycling rates compared with other commodities, such as paper and cardboard,” said Mike Haley, vice president of PPE at Kimberly-Clark Professional. “As the program continues to grow and evolve, we remain committed to finding ways to expand our recycling capabilities in order to help our customers reach their goals and to deliver on our purpose of Better Care for a Better World.”
