Pilgrim Dry Cleaners uses only safe, environmentally friendly, green cleaning solvents in our dry cleaning process. We do not use PERC, or any chemicals that are harmful to our bodies, or hazardous to dispose into the environment. We also have sustainable business practices for the thousands of hangers and plastic poly bags that we use at our stores. All 25 of our locations have recycling collections for our customers to dispose of their poly bags & metal hangers. We use a local company that supports career and educational enrichment for our community to recycle our poly bags. This company melts the plastic garment bags and converts them into construction materials. We use metal hangers instead of treated wood, because unlike treated wood that cannot be recycled; metal can be recycled through regular recycling processes and is able to be melted down and reused.
