Henkel has expanded its Adhesive Recycling Program to enable customers to meet their sustainability goals and recycle even more previously non-recyclable Loctite adhesive packaging. Henkel launched this innovative, first-of-its-kind adhesive recycling program last year for its anaerobic adhesive packaging. The company is pleased to announce that its Loctite Light Cure Acrylic Adhesives are now part of the program.
Recycling made easy
Henkel is the first adhesive manufacturer to offer customers a recycling solution for adhesive packaging through its partnership with TerraCycle, an innovative recycling company whose objective is “eliminating the idea of waste” by recycling the non-recyclable. Through the program, customers can meet their sustainability goals while still using the Loctite products they know and trust.
Another bonus: the process is easy. To join the program, customers simply contact their Henkel distributor or Loctite industrial salesperson. Henkel provides interested customers with durable collection containers and convenient return shipping. These collection containers should be placed in locations where Loctite products are used or discarded. All discarded adhesive bottles must be capped and fully closed prior to placing them in the recycling container. Once full, the customer must securely close the liner before shipping the container back to TerraCycle, where the collected waste is sorted by material type, and residual adhesives are batch cured and processed according to the adhesive and packaging material. The waste is then made into new and innovative products.
The Adhesive Recycling Program is one way Henkel demonstrates its commitment to delivering more value at a reduced environmental impact. To learn more about the recycling program, TerraCycle customer support is available weekdays to answer questions, and Henkel representatives are available to assist with the order.
