Healthcare Recycling

Medical institutions expend volumes of resources for operations and patient care. As such, hospital waste generation in the U.S. exceeds 5.9 million tons annually. On average, 33 pounds of waste per staffed bed per day is generated according to Practice Greenhealth. Sustainable waste management practices result in waste hauling reductions, recycling rebates, and positive environmental impacts for the organization that recycles. Since hospitals are the second largest generator of waste in the U.S., it is imperative to instill sustainable practices into daily operations. Through sensible waste management, the medical institutions of Dallas can help the city realize Zero Waste by 2040, while showing a positive impact on their own bottom line.
