Hospital and Medical Recycling Programs and Bins
Because Hospitals are such large facilities with intricate operations and employee systems, recycling programs most often end up being uncoordinated, and lack support. Hospital waste is also considered one of the most complex waste streams of any industry and they produce a phenomenal volume.
The Good News? According to the World Health Organization, about 80% of hospital waste is general waste! Paper is the largest part of the waste stream at hospitals including white paper , cardboard etc. all of which are high value recyclable materials.
Hospitals can take small steps towards reducing their carbon footprint with the help of CleanRiver and become leaders in lowering their carbon output by using renewable eneregy sources, minimizing waste reduction with effective recycling programs, and more.
