Subaru Announces New Initiative to Recycle PPE Waste in Partnership with TerraCycle
August 31, 2020
Subaru of America, Inc., announced a new recycling initiative to recycle personal protective equipment (PPE) waste in response to the increase in waste due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new initiative is an expansion of the automaker’s existing recycling collection partnership with TerraCycle, the world’s leader in the collection and repurposing of complex waste streams.
The new collection efforts divert improperly discarded PPE from landfills and incinerators. Subaru will employ TerraCycle’s Zero Waste Boxes™ to collect disposable masks and gloves across more than 20 offices nationwide, including ports, regional training centers and the automaker’s headquarters in Camden, NJ.
