Environmental Responsibility

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has called for the reduction of disposable products and the increased use of reusable items, such as cloth. Because Mickey’s washes and services textiles, we are by nature, a recycler! Mickey’s Linen® can provide businesses with a number of solutions that will help reduce their disposables as well as solid wastes.

There are many ways in which Mickey’s helps the environment:

  • Hanger recycling program
  • Water recovery systems help reduce water consumption by 20% allowing for re-use
  • Re-use of textiles – when a product can no longer be rented, it is downgraded for alternative uses
  • Systems have been implemented to reduce the energy used to heat the hot water (this method of heat transfer reduces fossil fuels)
  • Recycle linen, paper and packaging materials when it is possible
  • The paper products we service in restrooms offer portion control / one-at-a-time servings to reduce over-use and waste – these products are made from recycled paper
  • We use high efficiency lighting to reduce unnecessary energy consumption
  • Software is used to optimize our route deliveries, minimizing the distances traveled and conserving fuel used
  • All chemicals are environmentally approved
  • We train and educate our customers on how to reduce paper (paper napkins and paper on the table top) in their facility in an effort to help reduce landfill waste
