Sustainable Waste Management

In hospitals today there is huge potential for waste minimization through education and training which can in turn increase recycling, and decrease waste previously incorrectly classified as infectious. This also has huge financial benefits as a potential reduction of hazardous waste through correct classification of offensive waste streams will impact your carbon footprint.

Unnecessarily treating non-hazardous waste as hazardous severely increases carbon output. If non-infectious waste is mixed with infectious waste and treated as such, it is being treated unnecessarily, requiring energy during this process.

We can provide a variety of educational tools suited to our clients, using various training techniques in order to successfully achieve sustainable and cost-effective waste management, we believe that it is essential to ensure that all staff are fully trained in safe waste handling and segregation. If this is done correctly the amount of clinical waste being incinerated or treated can be reduced quite considerably. Therefore lowering the costs to the client and the environment.

At Cliniwaste we believe that the answer to sustainable waste management lies in education. Our main objective is to change current trends in waste generation, this is where our expertise lies. More pressure is being put on health care organizations and the industry by the Government to improve and develop their waste infrastructure. The main emphasis being
