Since 1970, we have set a positive example in our community through our environmental practices. Dependable Cleaners recycles just about everything and we use environmentally friendly solvents and soaps.
Hangers…We accept all hangers and reuse what we can and recycle the rest. Pick up one of our free hanger caddies at any of our locations. Fill it up and drop it off with your next order.
Poly bags...Our plastic garment bags can be recycled. Simply place your used bags in the recycling bins located in each of our stores or return them in your VIP bag with your next order. Please remove all staples and paper before recycling.
Safety Pins...We accept safety pins for reuse.
At the beginning of this century, Dependable invested over a half a million dollars to start its conversion to the newest environmentally friendly solvent, DF2000. It adds richness to the garment's natural color while bathing the material in a mild and odorless fluid, leaving the finished garment comfortably soft while preventing our customers from exposure to perehloroethylene. By the end of 2010 all locations will be using this alternative solvent.
You may have noticed that an “Environmental Fee” is assessed to our dry-cleaning services. The Environmental Fee is intended to cover the increasing cost faced by our company in complying with Federal, State and local regulations involving the storage, transportation and disposal of regulated materials used in the cleaning of your garments. This amount is an estimate of the compliance cost, which may vary by service, geographic area and time. This charge is not a Federal, State or local tax and is not required by any governmental authority.
