Hard hat recycling
As we continue our mission to reduce, reuse, or repurpose waste, we occasionally come across a product that is perfect for its purpose but a particular challenge to dispose of responsibly.
Hard hats are a case in point – they’re essential safety equipment but need to be replaced every three years, which adds up to a lot of plastic.
We’ve partnered with Unitec’s Environmental Solutions Research Centre and 3R Group to explore our options. They’re going to take our end-of-life hard harts apart, identify all the components, and try to work out how to divert them from landfill.
We’ll let you know how it goes!
