Reusable Garment Bags
In the Summer of 2010, Urban Valet began phasing out the use of plastic dry cleaning bags and became the first and only dry cleaner in WNY to offer The Green Garmento reusable garment bag as an alternative.
Water Based Cleaning
By using a non-toxic, more energy efficient dry cleaning technology, we are protecting our customers, their families, and our employees from the health risks associated with exposure to toxic dry cleaning solvents. Urban Valet now professionally wet cleans 60% of the clothes we process.
Package/Hanger Recycling Program
Urban Valet has a comprehensive recycling program. Customers are encouraged to return all of the items that we use for packaging, including hangers. When appropriate, we reuse the items. When reuse is not possible, we recycle them.
In the Fall of 2009, a warming system was added to Urban Valet's Hamburg Drive-Inside Service Area. The new system redirects heat from our production floor and boiler room to other areas of the building. It was more expensive, but it was a great way to make use of heat we were already producing.
