Nitrile Gloves and PPE

Hazardous Waste Landfill

If nitrile gloves and PPE are not contaminated with hazardous waste, they can be placed in the landfill. If they are contaminated, work with a Generator Assistant.

Do you wish you could recycle gloves? It is possible- they can be up-cycled into eco-friendly plastic products like Adirondack Chairs. Sustainable Berkeley Lab is looking for a few motivated labs to partner with to pilot some of the glove recycling programs.  If you’re interested in trying out this program at your lab, please contact [email protected].
