Environmental responsibility has long been a top priority at Anton’s
During the past three decades, government agencies (US EPA, Massachusetts DEP, Massachusetts Toxic Use Reduction Institute), the drycleaning industry (Drycleaning Laundry Institute, North East Fabricare Institute) and outside groups (University Leaders for a Sustainable Future, Massachusetts Business Environmental Network) have recognized Anton’s as a leader in dry cleaning industry environmental issues.
EcoClean Clothing Care™ continues our total commitment by providing a safe environment for our customers, employees and the community.
Our equipment replacement plan is based on an ongoing process of analyzing and researching environmentally friendly alternative drycleaning fluids. Anton’s Cleaners has installed Green Earth™ and/or EcoSolv® fluid dry cleaning machines in all locations and is 100% PERC-free.
At Anton’s, we follow clothing manufacturer recommendations in selecting the best cleaning process. We wetclean more than 50% of all garments.
Our dry cleaning and wetcleaning equipment is computer controlled for maximum efficiency and has helped reduce dry cleaning fluid consumption by 90% over the last 20 years, as well as water consumption by 50%.
Our drycleaning equipment uses a sophisticated distillation process that recycles dry cleaning fluid to provide totally clean dry cleaning fluid for each load.
Anton’s employees receive continuous training to meet the company’s rigorous cleaning performance standards.
100% recycling of dry cleaning fluid waste. In 1982 Anton’s was the first cleaner in the United States to institute this practice. Anton’s objective is to minimize waste and then recycle it, not just dispose of it.
To make it easy for customers to recycle, Anton’s has a recycling center in each of its stores.
- Wire hangers: Anton’s Cleaners both reuses and recycles the hangers.
- Plastic: Anton’s recycles plastic used in covering clothes.
