The theme for the third Global Recycling Day is “Recycling Heroes”, to recognize people, places and activities that showcase the important role recycling plays in creating a healthy planet.

Health care facilities produce a significant amount of waste through their daily operations. While some types of health care waste demand specific treatment and management requirements, there are many opportunities for recycling around a facility. Doing so can reduce environmental impacts and related carbon emissions while also generating financial savings.

Celebrate Global Recycling Day with GGHH by accessing our Waste Guidance Document and our case studies documenting successful recycling projects from around the world, learn how your facility can integrate recycling into its operations and become a Recycling Hero!
