Garment Recovery Systems

Recycle Your Used DuPont™ Tyvek® Garments and Be Part of the Environmental Solution!

Garment Recovery Systems (GRS) recycles all disposable Tyvek® items. Such items include coveralls, lab coats, pants, aprons, sleeves, hoods, shoe covers, and boot covers.  If it is Tyvek® apparel, we can recycle it!  Our program is easily set up and administered, requiring no more labor than simply throwing the garments away. Garment Recovery Systems will also pay for your shipping. GRS tailors the program to your company’s specific needs. GRS offers your company a free and innovative program that meets your green initiative. GRS’s disposable garment recycling program will give your company an additional way to cut costs, reduce solid waste, and be green!

Why should we recycle Tyvek®?

Tyvek® items are made of flash spun high-density polyethylene fibers and do not decompose in landfills. GRS diverts this solid waste from being thrown into our capacity filled landfills, and recycles them to be used again.  GRS’ sister company resells the material into the industrial market such as auto body shops or steel mills.  This offers a more cost effective and eco-friendly alternative to purchasing new material for companies using Tyvek® in the industrial market.
