Quality Assurance and Compliance
All Alsco branches work in accordance to the AS/NZS 4146:2000 Laundry Practice; which specifies general laundry practice requirements for commercial and industrial laundries.
- Alsco cares about the environment and we ask our employees, contractors and customers to do the same.
- Where possible, we reduce our waste quantities by re-using and re-cycling materials.
- We are reducing our impact on air quality by minimizing and controlling fugitive vapors and odours from materials and equipment used in our operations.
- We store all solvents and liquids in a sealed and enclosed area in accordance with safety and environmental requirements.
- We are aware that noise can be a nuisance and a health concern for our staff and neighbors. We endeavor to reduce noise in our workplace by maintaining our equipment in good working order.
- We are reducing our water and energy consumption where possible because we know it is good for the environment and our bottom line.
Our goal is to minimize our impact on the environment. To this end we are one of the pioneers of the use of alternative fuels for energy generation and transport. An example of this is demonstrated by the use of CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) in our fleet, which assists in the reduction of pollution generated by diesel or petrol powered vehicles and other forms of environmentally hazardous fuels.
