Recycling for Sustainable Science
WHAT WE DO
We accept pipette tip boxes from all manufacturers
GreenLabs Recycling collects and recycles empty pipette tip boxes, refillable wafers and other plastic items from research facilities in Greater Boston. We provide locally-based, cost effective plastic recycling solutions to help make science sustainable.
Scientists rely on plastic but plastic waste from the lab is rarely recycled. Pipette tip boxes account for ~75% of all lab-generated plastic waste items. Even if pipette tip boxes make their way to a recycling facility, they are often misidentified as medical waste, and sorted into the trash.

Our mission is to collect and recycle plastic items from the lab science and brewing industries that are not accepted or able to be captured with current system technologies used at large-scale recycling sorting facilities. Key to our mission is keeping the recycling process local. By having the collection, recycling, and manufacturing steps close together, GreenLabs Recycling aims to cut emissions from long-distance transport, making our operation more environmentally sustainable and cost effective for all parties.
