Archived and replaced the following description on Dec. 10, 2017:
In lab buildings, protective gloves can be a major component of the waste stream. For example, at the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC), plastic gloves were found to be over 8% of their total waste by weight. There is a recycling program for nitrile gloves that can be purchased through Fisher Scientific, for Kimberely-Clark nitrile gloves. This program is being implemented at various locations across campus.
