US' Standard Textile launches Take-Back Recycling programme

Standard Textile, a global leader in the healthcare and hospitality textile markets, has launched its Take-Back Recycling programme. This programme underscores the company's commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship while offering customers a convenient solution for responsible disposal of linens.

"We are thrilled to introduce our Take-Back Recycling programme, which aligns with our mission to promote sustainability throughout our operations," said Melanie Boyle, director of corporate social responsibility at Standard Textile. "By partnering with our customers, we can make a significant impact on reducing waste and exploring circularity with our products."

In its Take-Back programme, the company welcomes back retired linens that it then repurposes or downcycles into other products such as carpet padding or automobile insulation.

To test the processes and efficacy of the planned programme prior to launching, Standard Textile partnered with two of their hospitality customers with more than 35 properties across the country to conduct a pilot throughout 2022 and 2023, the company said in a press release.

"We've always valued the quality product Standard Textile delivers for our furnished apartments but being invited to participate in the pilot of their Take-Back Recycling programme has added another dimension to our partnership," said Paul DeFruscio, EVP, Asset. "At AVE, we strive to be best-in-class in our industry and that includes having sustainable operations. Since we launched in 2022, we've together diverted over 3,000 pounds of linens from landfills to be repurposed or recycled into other products."

Standard Textile invites participation from its hospitality customers nationwide, with plans underway to explore opportunities in its other markets as well. While there is a minimal fee to cover freight and processing costs, getting started is simple.
