Green Circle Salons offers a comprehensive recycle and repurposing program that ensures hair, foils, color tubes, plastics, papers, and chemicals get diverted out of our waste and water streams. This means that between 85%-95% of waste from the salon will now be diverted out of our landfill spaces.
Hair is turned into hair booms to clean up oil spills, or to be made into pillows & dog beds for international aid efforts. It also can be turned into bio-composite to make recycle bins, or used in compost with other organic waste
All metals are sorted by grade and type. Aerosols are depressurized & send to a Green Circle partner facility. Metals are melted down into aluminum sheets and made to use for bicycle and car parts.
Excess hair color is either turned into clean energy or separated into water & oil. Water is cleaned and turned into the water system & oil is blended into fuel.
Salons collect used PPE such as face masks, disinfectant wipes and gloves and will be turned into clean energy to power our homes and businesses right here in Seattle.
