Sustainability Services

Because healthcare facilities generate an enormous amount and diversity of waste, opportunities for cost-saving sustainability programs abound.

When you want a completely integrated, environmentally responsible approach for managing the waste, let our Sustainability Services team guide you. We can work closely with you to help you see green in every department and at every level of your organization.

Waste Management puts every option at your disposal.

By taking an integrated approach to managing your supply stream, from product procurement to material disposal, you can accrue important environmental and business benefits for your facility.

As North America’s leading environmental services and recycling company, we can help you maximize the value of the waste materials your facility generates, while incorporating sustainable business practices throughout your healthcare operations. Our innovative recycling programs are just one of the ways this approach can be extremely worthwhile, not only by furthering your environmental goals, but by contributing to your bottom line and enhancing your reputation in the community.

Every healthcare facility is different. Every solution is, too.

Our experts can collaborate with you to tailor a plan that’s exactly right for you. We then stay engaged, making sure you continue to get the most value from your supply stream and that your facility is treading as lightly as possible on the environment. Let Waste Management apply our best practices to your organization to maximize your operational efficiencies while reducing environmental service costs.

  • On-site implementation, training and support for your employees
  • Goal-setting and measurement. Together, we’ll set reasonable program goals, then track, measure and report your progress. We’ve found that by setting annual performance goals and regularly reporting progress, everyone is motivated to make your program successful.
