More than 35 million fewer hangers will make their way to landfills this year, thanks to the help of Best Care Dry Cleaners and other participants of the Drycleaning & Laundry Institute’s “DLI Cleaners Care – Hanger Recycling” program.
Best Care Dry Cleaners formerly recycled thousands of hangers each year on its own, but by joining with associated cleaning businesses across the nation the company was able to contribute to a greater goal.
How does Best Care’s Staff and Management feel about this effort? “We’re proud to be part of a program that keeps hangers out of landfills and helps reduce our industry’s carbon footprint. We want our customers to know that we care about the environment and the future as much as we care about cleaning their garments.”
Best Care Dry Cleaners is working with many other dry cleaners on the Drycleaning & Laundry Institute’s DLI Cleaners Care Hanger Recycling program. The national effort aims to send 35 million fewer hangers to landfills in 2017, and hopes to see the number grow beyond that.
Participating dry cleaners pledge to reuse hangers whenever possible and recycle unusable hangers with local steel scrapyards. How can our customers help? Take a free cardboard hanger caddy when you’re in to drop off cleaning, fill it up with wire hangers and drop it off at one of our locations. Your closet and the environment will thank you!
