Recycling Medical Supplies

Service Type
Body

Healthcare facilities produce a diverse and overwhelming amount of waste - over 6,000 tons of waste per day.

Only about 15% of this waste is considered infectious, which means the remaining 85% is considered solid waste, including materials like cardboard, paper, metal, glass, plastics and unused medical supplies. Roughly 30-50% of what is routinely - and mistakenly - disposed of as regulated medical waste (RMW) could be managed as solid waste.
