Clean Green Certified and Ongoing Sustainability Efforts

TRSA Clean Green Certified Logo

In honor of Earth Day this month, the Chicago uniform company wants to acknowledge the ongoing efforts to enhance efficiencies in our plant, delivery fleets and across operations. Roscoe has always been committed to conserving and recycling natural resources and we PRIDE ourselves in our history of environmentally friendly laundering.

The uniform rental company pioneered waste water pre-treatment (first in the nation) in 1974 in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). With that under our wing, we received the Governor’s Pollution Prevention Award for reductions in water usage and solid waste in 1999. To further our efforts in water and energy reduction we consolidated the uniform rental company’s two plants into one in 2009 and earned the prestigious Laundry Environmental Stewardship Innovation (ESP) Award.
