Reducing the environmental impact of non-infectious hospital waste: A Case Study in a Regional Public Hospital

Viewed: 160

This project will investigate waste streams and their disposal in a Southern Downs Hospital. The aim is to develop a co-created recycling intervention with hospital staff and then implement it to reduce the amount of waste ending up in landfill or in the clinical waste streams. The potential benefits are reduced carbon emissions through improved recycling, reduced landfill space and reduced waste collection fees for the hospital.
