Is your business recycling hard hats?

Hard hats used in the construction industry have a limited shelf life. So how can your business dispose of retired hats responsibly?

According to the government’s Health and Safety Executive (HSC), hard hats should be in good condition and if they are damaged they must be thrown away. This is an essential part of health and safety because they lose their ability to protect people at work when damaged.

Putting hard hats into general plastic recycling often means they end up going into landfill, alongside millions of others hats that go into landfill every year. So what can your business do to help?
