Space Guidance for Hospitals

SOURCE: Healthcare Plastics Recycling Council

DESCRIPTION:

One hindrance in the development of an effective hospital recycling program is the lack of dock space to stage or process materials. Docks are often cluttered and disorganized with material entering and exiting the facility.

HPRC has solutions-- from mapping the flow of materials, characterizing waste, the 5S approach, and making the most of the space that you have. Read the comprehensive guidance along with links to very useful resources on this page.
