New to Work Uniform Rentals? What You Need to Know

If you're considering a work uniform rental service, you'll be faced with several options:

  • Local independent vs. national supplier
  • Customized vs. cookie-cutter program
  • Several options that can impact both cost and cost justification

The purpose of this blog is to explain some of the pros and cons of each option and to understand the overall cost justification.

Local vs. Independent

The national suppliers are taking over the market by buying up many smaller independents. They tend to be process efficient and somewhat cheaper (at least initially), just don't ask for any customization or flexibility and high employee turnover doesn't help – and many of their customers feel like they get nickled and dimed when they see invoice spikes due to costs hidden in their contract's fine print.

Shop Towel Rule FAQ

Shop Towel Rule FAQ

Now that the Shop Towel Rule has recently been enacted, we get asked a lot of questions on what it means for our customers. This blog post details answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ).

What is the "Shop Towel Rule"?

The Solvent Contaminated Wipe Rule, or "Shop Towel Rule" was published on July 31, 2013, by the U.S. EPA to exempt "reusable wipes" (known at Roscoe as "Print Towels" and "Shop Towels") from regulation as solid waste so long as certain conditions are met. The rule entered into force on January 31, 2014 and revises the definition of "solid waste" under the EPA's Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to conditionally exclude from further regulation (as a solid or hazardous waste) solvent-contaminated towels that are cleaned and re-used. Most of the requirements have been part of Roscoe's standard operating procedures for decades.
