MilliporeSigma Biopharma Recycling Program


Merck:/Freestyle/DIV-Divisional/Corporate-Responsibility/CR-Images/recycle-biopharma.jpgAs part of our commitment to reducing the environmental impacts of our products, we have designed a product recycling program. The program has been set up through an exclusive partnership with Triumvirate Environmental to enable bioprocess manufacturing customers to fully recycle all single-use and disposable products, including bio-hazardous classified material.

Merck:/Freestyle/DIV-Divisional/Corporate-Responsibility/CR-Images/trium.jpgRecyclable materials include single-use bags, tubing and connectors, cartridge and capsule filters, clarification and depth filters, and empty chemical containers and drums. Once recycled, these materials are turned into industrial-grade plastic lumber products, such as landscaping timbers, retaining walls, speed bumps, parking blocks and plastic shipping pallets.
