Green cloths for the printing industry

Posted on 8th July, 2010

ClothCare is a new specialist recycling service for rags, wipes and cloths used in the printing industry. The company supplies, collects and recycles cloths to the industry, providing an easy to use and environmentally friendly service.

WasteCare has been providing recycling services to printers for 30 years. Now, through a partnership with Print Cloth Ltd, ClothCare has been established.

ClothCare imports the best quality cloths made from natural cotton. The cloths are distributed in 10kg bags to anywhere within the UK. Used cloths are collected and returned for recovery free of charge.

The bespoke process quality checks every item before 100 per cent of the oil and solvent is removed from the material. The recovered hydrocarbons are treated and blended to produce a fuel for energy recovery. The wipes are further screened and the best are picked for re-use. The remainder are processed to make Pro-Fuel. There is absolutely no waste produced from this process.

For as little as 7p each the cloths are delivered ready to use, guaranteeing lint free absorbency. After use they are collected free of charge.

The delivery and collection service is also very sustainable. With the highest density collection fleet serving the printing industry WasteCare guarantee the lowest carbon footprint, in fact using a ClothCare cloth can save you over 2kg of carbon.
