Improve Your Business with Sustainable Waste Management Solutions


Sustainable waste management has become an important aspect of doing business. Modern businesses have become much more conscientious about the environmental impact of their operation.  

This is a result of rising governmental involvement on the issues of pollution in our soil, air, and water.

It’s also a result of growing demand from the general public, who are calling out major companies to start doing their part in protecting the environment and minimizing their carbon footprint. And as consumer awareness broadens, companies are seeking to align with eco-friendly values and “green” goals.

To this end, many businesses have developed sustainability programs, with initiatives to reduce negative impacts on the environment.

Some industries have been singled out and are under immense pressure to develop more sustainable waste management solutions for their business and their products.

This includes manufacturers and industrial consumers in the following categories:

  • Home Care
  • Auto Care
  • Bulk Materials
  • Personal Care
  • Food and Beverage

Product Recycling and Product Destruction Programs

One of the sustainability initiatives these industries are expected to implement is a product recycling program that reduces or even eliminates the waste that companies typically send to landfills.

That’s because landfills are among the biggest contributors to soil pollution — but up to 80% of the items in landfills could be recycled.

Among those recyclable products are surfactants. Which are key substances found in many common household and industrial products, including:

  • Detergents
  • Emulsifiers
  • Cosmetics
  • Cleaning products
  • Shampoo
  • Lotions
  • Soaps
  • Foods and beverages.

Here at Valicor, we have sustainable waste management solutions to reduce the environmental impact of these types of products.

In fact, our product recycling and safe destruction processes effectively divert 50+ million pounds of surfactants from landfills each year.

Product Recycling

Your business may already have a recycling program in place. Plastic, aluminum, and other materials are separated from other wastes and are transported offsite. But do you actually know where those recycled products go or what happens to them?

Sometimes just sending those items to a recycler or a landfill isn’t enough to protect your reputation and your brand.

You can rest assured that with Valicor, our comprehensive waste minimization programs allow us to separate surfactants, oils, leachates, and other substances from the packaging.

So that each contaminant and type of packaging is safely and properly cleaned, recycled, and reused whenever possible.

Product Destruction

When recycling isn’t possible, package destruction processes may be necessary. Why might a company or brand need a bulk solution for product recycling or safe destruction?

A company may find itself with an inventory of expired consumer goods, such as the household, food and beverage products mentioned above.

Valicor provides a solution for companies that want to lessen their environmental impact and partake in certified product destruction processes.

Another instance to consider is a widespread recall on consumer goods. These products could easily compound the expansion of landfill waste, but with Valicor’s comprehensive solutions, they don’t have to.

And last but not least, when insurance claims are made on damaged material, those damaged materials must also be disposed of.

Why further contribute these damaged goods to landfills when Valicor can recycle, reuse, and destroy them when necessary — all while reclaiming energy through the product destruction process?
