Pandemic Waste: With Coronavirus The Gloves & Wipes Waste Unimaginable


Covid 19 has our health system as well as all of us working backward. We are tossing materials out like mad for fear of contamination.


Not only is it a recycle mess it's a social mess! People are afraid of the contaminants and just tossing them everywhere. In shopping carts on the street, in the parking lots.
Single-Use Unneccesary Disposal - What Can You Do? 
Not only is it a recycle mess it's a social mess! People are afraid of the contaminants and just tossing them everywhere. In shopping carts on the street, in the parking lots.



That doesn't just include hospitals using gloves and gowns, but individuals tossing single use gloves, masks, and wipes on a daily basis!  

Not only is it a recycle mess it's a social mess! People are afraid of the contaminants and just disposing of them everywhere. In shopping carts on the street, in the parking lots.

Hopefully, stores, businesses, gas stations, etc will place disposable recycle boxes outside their exit doors for gloves and wipes to help us recycle.  Gloves and wipes have to be disposed of differently than toilet paper or tissues. 

Here are a number of topics and solutions I found. Some solutions for small businesses and large and information guides: 

Recycle Disposable Wipes 
Recycle Gloves
Terracycle Disposable Boxes
Kimberly Clark Right Cycle 
Clean Hands Eco Friendly Alternatives
