Single-use plastic?
Not on our watch.

Much of the plastic used in scientific research is highly recyclable but is not accepted by most municipal recyclers. GreenLabs Recycling collects, processes and recycles your #1PET and #5PP clean plastic locally, giving the material a second life and preventing it from going to landfills or incineration facilities.

If you are outside this area, we are working on expanding, so keep checking in, and send us a message if you want to have our services where you are located!

Can I mail you my pipette tip boxes?

At this time we are not accepting mail-ins of lab plastic material. Look out for our upcoming can carrier mail-in program for those outside of our normal collections sphere. For potential clients who are too far for us to pickup from regularly, soon you will be able to mail in your own collection of can carriers for recycling at our facility in Concord, MA.

Do you have a drop-off location?

Right now we can only accept pipette tip boxes and lab plastic material if we pick it up directly from your facility. If you are a municipality looking to recycle large amounts of clean and unlabeled #5 plastic, contact us here.
