Recycling & Reclaiming Your Absorbent Materials
Polypropylene is a plastic that is found in almost every industry in some form or another. Discovered in the mid-1950s by scientists, this plastic is super popular due to its incredible characteristics that are applicable to many uses today, from being able to withstand high temperatures to absorbing spills.
Brent Industries is a textile recycling company that specializes in green waste recycling. We recycle absorbent materials such as oil mats, oil soakers and socks, and polypropylene absorbents. We've pioneered a closed-loop recycling process that recaptures solvents using our reclaiming dryers and recovery units so no residual vapors or solvents escape into the atmosphere. Plus, we ensure your work gloves, wiping materials, filters, and absorbents are reused, saving on source materials as well. Call our green waste recycling company to get started today!
MATERIALS OUR UNIVERSAL POLYPROPYLENE PADS ABSORB
- Hydraulic fluids
- Most chemicals

In life, accidents happen. Sometimes accidents happen a lot, which, if you are a parent of a toddler, you know they happen about every 20 minutes on average. When working with liquids, spills are inevitable and a part of life. Once you accept this fact, then the question becomes how best to deal with spills when they occur.
Brent Industries offers many types of absorbent materials for your use to soak up these spills quickly and efficiently when they occur. Our absorbent materials include oil mats, oil soakers, oil socks, wiping materials, and universal polypropylene pads. In addition to providing these top-of-the-line absorbents, we also offer absorbent recycling services. We offer two programs for the reconditioning of reusable polypropylene absorbents: reconditioning and return, where we return the absorbent materials to you. Below, we'll take a look at some of the benefits of universal polypropylene pads. Contact our hazardous waste disposal company today!
Polypropylene is the second most common plastic produced behind its cousin, polyethylene. Plastic in general is extremely cheap to produce. Plastic is made from hydrocarbons, which is found everywhere in the earth. They are found in petroleum all over the world. While this is a contributing factor, plastic is so cheap to produce due to its defining characteristic of being able to be formed into any shape extremely quickly and cheaply. Molds are often made, which means you can produce thousands of plastic products the same shape in mere hours. Thus, polypropylene pads are equally affordable as well.
Easy to Store
Our polypropylene pads are cut into small sizes that can be easily stored. This makes them easy to use for the industries that we serve, including the automotive, industrial warehouses, welding shops, oil change stores, and more. Polypropylene pads are made from a composite material that absorbs spills quickly and grips the cement floors. Highly durable and long-lasting, our universal polypropylene pads help prevent slips, trips, and falls. Being gray in color, they also help to hide spills when they occur.
Let's say you are taking some of your products to a trade show. At trade shows, there will be a mass of people crowding around you and your display. Many people will be touching your wares, including children, and that means spills — spills that you need to clean up fast. One of the best benefits of universal polypropylene pads is that they are portable. You can take them with you while traveling, doing trade-shows, or even auto racing, and they are the perfect size for spill kits as well. You can even keep one in your car in case of an emergency oil leak or other fluid leaks while traveling, or they are perfect for at-home use in your garage for when you are fixing up your vehicles.
If you can imagine spilling a whole drum full of oil and then having to use absorbent materials to clean that up, the materials combined with the oil can get very heavy extremely quickly. This can make it difficult to lift up and put in safe containers for treatment, and these containers can then be extremely heavy to transport. Universal polypropylene pads are extremely lightweight since they are mostly made from plastic. You can stack these absorbent pads on top of each other to create a thicker surface to soak up your spilled materials if need be, giving you control over how many of your absorbent pads you use. Brent Industries offers pick-up and delivery services of your used absorbent materials for reconditioning at our facility.
In today's world, most of us are looking for simple ways we can reduce our carbon footprint. This can be as simple as home recycling or investing in companies that use recycled products. If we all do little things, they will collectively add up to a huge impact overall. By reconditioning and recycling your universal polypropylene pads with a green waste recycling company such as Brent Industries, you'll be doing another small part to make a global impact. We use a proprietary method of reconditioning that captures residual solvents and reuses them for future processes. This lessens our carbon footprint on the environment and saves money, which we then pass on to our customers.

Brent Industries has been a green waste recycler since 1977, long before most people even knew what that was. We began as a small glove reconditioner and have added many additional textile recycling services, including wiping materials, safety wear, absorbents, and filter media. Instead of disposing of your used textiles, work gloves, wiping materials, and absorbents, we are able to recondition these textile products using our proprietary dry-cleaning process for reuse. This saves you money and conserves natural resources.
Our recycling process removes the substances on your materials using solvents, which are then repurposed and reused themselves. Our unique closed-loop recycling process is gentle on the environment, EPA-compliant, and saves money. We offer a shipping process that allows us to pick up and transport your materials to and from your location, making it super convenient for you. We ensure that the textile and fabric materials that you send us are returned to you. We carefully track each batch throughout our reconditioning process to ensure no mix-ups occur.
We pride ourselves on being the best textile recycling company that offers an eco-friendly way to recondition and reuse what normally would be discarded in your business. We offer top-notch products that are great for the environment and for your pocketbook. Contact our textile recycling company today!
