Recycling Operation Centers
There are three Clean the World recycling operation centers in Orlando, Las Vegas, and Toronto, Ontario. Additional collection and recycling facilities will be established soon to other primary as well as secondary markets. Through this expansion, carbon footprint will be greatly reduced while the collection and recycling of bar soap and bottled amenities will increase exponentially.
How do we do it?
Clean the World is committed to maintaining an environmentally and hygienically safe recycling process. As the world’s first, high volume soap recycler, Clean the World ensures that all bars of soap recycled and distributed domestically and abroad are completely safe and will not harm the end user due to disease or pathogens that can be transmitted if proper re-purposing does not exist.
- First we work with our Hospitality Partners to educate their staff on the soap and shampoo Recycling Program. We provide bins which housekeeping staff uses to deposits collected soap. Pick up the bins weekly. We provide online training videos and housekeeping instruction posters.
- The soap is taken to our Soap Recycling plant, where it is then put through a sanitization process.
About Soap Sanitization
Our proprietary and patent pending sanitization process is applied to 90% of the slightly used bars. The soap soaks in a sanitizing solution and is then ground down into soap noodles and fed through a soap press to produce brand new bars of soap. Clean the World then tests the soap’s pH level and cools it for packaging.
Is it Effective?
To test the recycling process, Clean the World hired Tri-Tech Laboratories – a Florida State certified testing facility. TriTech provided infected soap that was run through the standard Clean the World recycling process. The treated soap was tested for sterilization levels. The result was the complete elimination of all the pathogens (Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aerogenes, Salmonella typhymurium, Staphylococcus aureus).
