US Tool “Green” Program

SIMPLE. SUSTAINABLE. SMART.

US TOOL GROUP “GREEN” ENVIRONMENTAL CONTRIBUTION

Currently US Tool reconditions over 500,000 pieces of cutting tools per week, equating to >$18,000,000 dollars in reconditioning/recycling effort per year.

US Tool Recycles

US Tool’s historical core business is recycling cutting tools. Cutting tools are manufactured from various tool steels requiring steel, cobalt, molybdenum, vanadium, nickel tungsten and chromium.

Each year, US Tool recycles one million pounds of these materials. Since the average tool can be recycled four times, US Tool’s recycling process reduces the impact on our environment in energy, mining, smelting, grinding etc. of effectively four million pounds of raw materials annually.

US Tool also supports our Integrated Supply programs with customer specific sustainability programs including:

  • Recycling of carbide and high speed cutting tool scrap and machining sludge
  • Recycling of machine tool filters
  • Recycling of solvents and metalworking fluids
  • Environmentally appropriate disposal of batteries and other similar products
