As environmental issues dominate many of the world’s news platforms, an increasing number of businesses have felt obliged to look more caring when it comes to issues like climate change and environmental waste.
For many companies this can lead to complete overhauls of workplaces, major cutbacks in carbon emissions and, most pertinently to us, a reconsideration of the kind of waste disposal necessary for a large company.
But while most standard companies can simply start separating their glass from their plastics, the process of recycling in a medical environment can be a lot more complicated.
The right kind of waste
Recycling as much healthcare waste as possible is vital to helping a sustainable and ecologically conscious industry, but the process for recycling medical waste has to be delicate if it’s to be done correctly.
Hazardous or toxic waste mixing with uncontaminated waste can be hazardous for the recycling process, tainting it with diseases that could infect large portions of the population.
Clear waste materials
When single-use medical materials are thrown in the wrong container, for instance, serious infection could be the end result.
This is why all our waste containers are clearly marked, and why our disposal experts know our colour coding systems inside out, allowing you to be safe in the knowledge that your recyclable materials won’t become tainted by toxic waste.
