Clean Earth launches program focusing on zero waste solutions

Clean Earth logo

Clean Earth has launched Fullcircle, an Advanced Waste Lifecycle Program. The new program strategically analyzes waste at each source of generation, then offers solutions for recycling and beneficial reuse alternatives for the material.

From initial product concept to lifecycle completion and everything in between, Fullcircle's goals are to eliminate all waste, recycle as much as possible, and build scalable, innovative programs for customers focused on zero waste.

With Fullcircle, customers do not choose services from a pre-set, one-size-fits-all menu to dispose of their waste stream. Rather, each solution is specifically tailored to the customer's waste journey with Fullcircle developing unique sustainable solutions aligned with their waste generation, sustainability goals and growth plans. The program offers enhanced tracking, reporting and data analysis of waste streams to monitor performance and measure against financial and corporate sustainability goals.

"We have identified a growing need for integrated service providers who provide true partnership management," said David Stanton, Senior Vice President and Group President of Clean Earth. "Our ambition is to solve the challenge of making it easy for our customers to properly manage their difficult-to-treat waste with the ultimate sustainable solution. It must be simple, innovative, transparent and trusted. That's where we come in."

The vast capability of Clean Earth's Fullcircle program explores every stage of waste generation, including:

  • Upstream waste management at inception
  • Flow change investigation
  • Contamination reduction
  • Final placement

"By looking at the full lifecycle, we ultimately eliminate the waste at every source," said Stanton. "At a time when companies and consumers are prioritizing sustainability efforts, our program is about making life easier for the customer by providing a plan that works for the organization's waste now and in the future, as well as for our environment."

More than 80 percent of parent company Harsco's revenue today comes from environmental services and solutions, compared to less than 65 percent three years ago. The company's goal is to ultimately derive over 90 percent of its annual revenue from environmental products and services, and Fullcircle is the next step in that transformation.
