Sustainability

Citron Hygiene’s concern for human safety and the environmental sustainability are at the core of who we are. The design of our service programs, products and internal processes reflect our respect for the environment.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

recycleReducing the amount of waste we generate is an integral component of our environmental stewardship program. Citron Hygiene’s comprehensive recycling program diverts a significant amount of waste from landfill including the following:

  • Cardboard and paper-based packaging
  • Used / empty aerosol cans and air freshener cartridges
  • Used / empty plastic soap and urinal treatment cartridges
  • Plastic dispensers and disposal units – at the end of their life span

Turning Waste into Energy*

covantaDiverting waste from landfill is integral to Citron Hygiene’s environmental programs and we have taken this initiative a step further through our partnership with Covanta Energy. Covanta provides a safe, technologically advanced means of waste disposal, through incineration, that generates clean, renewable energy, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and supports the recovery of metals.

We currently send waste generated through our sanitary disposal service to Covanta for waste-to-energy conversion.
