Targeting Hard to Recover Waste in Healthcare: Up & down stream efforts to reduce waste from OR’s and clinical settings…

While many large institutions are making real progress toward zero waste goals, hospitals and other medical facilities have struggled to keep pace. Healthcare generates an enormous amount of waste, much of it long considered unavoidable and unrecoverable. That’s starting to change as more sustainability initiatives seek solutions for single use items ranging from blue wrap to tubing and surgical instruments.

Our panel of speakers took a 360-view of the issue, sharing lessons learned and best practices. The program includes an analysis of the waste composition from several community hospitals, along with case study presentations about local recycling collection and circular economy solutions to reuse and eliminate certain medical items and packaging.

This free webinar replay also features an extended panel discussion (including the insights of a front line nurse about the real-world constraints and opportunities to implement change), and is followed by a post-event product showcase where you can get an in-depth look at our brand new RISE (wall-mounted) bins!
