Did you know that of the total amount of waste generated by health-care activities, 85% is general, non-hazardous waste, i.e. waste that is comparable to your domestic waste? The remaining 15% is considered hazardous material that may be infectious, toxic or radioactive.
Hospitals in the US produce more than 5.9 million tons of waste annually and produce 33lbs of medical waste per day per staffed bed. The numbers are staggering but think of these figures as an opportunity to make a significant impact on waste diversion!
— Health Care facilities are loaded with prime locations to collect recyclables and waste, and making sure you have the right containers for each job is step one. Smaller capacity bins should be used at desks and larger capacity bins should be used in high traffic areas. Custom signage and label options can educate staff, patients, and visitors on your recycling program while ensuring that material is sorted correctly.EXPLORE MORE
Our experience working with hotels and resorts has taught us two things. 1. Hotels & Resorts generate more waste than most realize. The average hotel guest creates about 2.2 lbs of waste per stay and more than half of it is paper, plastic and cardboard. 2. Containers need to be durable and practical for everyday use, yet aesthetically pleasing to suit each hotels’ unique décor. Hotel operators should consider implementing a proper recycling & waste program to maximize their ROI on removal.EXPLORE MORE

Optimizing the Collection System RETOOLING PROGRAMS TO IMPROVE OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY AND MATERIAL RECOVERY Original air date: Thurs May 18th, 2023 at 1:00pm EDT Description: Recycling collection programs are not static and require periodic adjustments over time. Whether to reinvigorate stagnant recovery rates, reduce contamination, or simply adjust to changing conditions, it’s important for programs to evolve over time. This free webinar (recorded live) featured two different approaches to optimizing material recovery programs. The first was presented by Zabble, featuring a case study from a university and healthcare setting that used technology and data tracking to right size bin infrastructure, improve signage, and address operational issues. The second presentation, from HSR Zero Waste, looked at the experience of a convention center to illustrate the potential to improve material quality and reduce cost by shifting to source segregated collection streams and onsite pre-sorting arrangement. ** This educational webinar is followed by a product showcase, featuring members of our sales team and some of our most popular indoor and outdoor waste bins. If you are interested in learning more about Busch Systems and which products would be best for you and your organization, please contact our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org. **

Organics Collection From Indoor Settings A SHORT PRESENTATION & SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION EVENT Original air date: Thursday April 6th, 2023 at 1:00pm ET Description: With the growing pressure to tackle GHG emissions, food waste diversion is increasingly moving beyond dining facilities. Waste audits have shown that organics and food packaging can make up 25% or more of the waste stream from offices, breakrooms and public areas. But capturing that material comes with its own set of logistic challenges, from coordinating custodial labor to managing odors to education about what to compost. This hybrid web event, a partnership between the Zero Waste Campus Council and Busch Systems, combined a best practices / lessons learned presentation (recorded) with interactive small-group discussions (not recorded) where attendees were encouraged to share their own challenges and practical experience.
