When used linens are brought to Monarch Brands they may contain substances that may be harmful to humans as well as the surfaces they are cleaning. This is especially true when buying from hospitals and hotels. Syringes, cutlery, pins, broken surgical equipment and even nuts and bolts have been found in rag bales over the years.
Monarch Brands is invested in the health and safety of everyone who comes in contact with our rags. Recycled rags that leave our facility are put through our metal detector piece by piece by piece. The detector is extremely sensitive and blows rags with trace amounts of foreign objects into a discard bin.
