Solid Waste Reduction, Resource Conservation & Clean Green Certified
Roscoe was founded in 1921 on the principles of sustainability – laundering and reusing textiles that were once discarded. This foundation of reuse has evolved over the years to include a variety of textiles and provides customers with alternatives to disposable products that find their way into landfills containing undesirable soiled materials. Roscoe installed the first wastewater pre-treatment system in the industry and holds the longest record of sustainability.
"Implementing sustainable best practices is not only smart for the environment, it is smart for the bottom line" remarked owner Jim Buik .... "our team members also feel a sense of pride by knowing they contribute to setting the standard in the industry."text
