Waste Diversion & Total Waste Management | GreenPrint
GreenPrint provides a master plan to help hospitals manage their waste more efficiently, environmentally, and cost-effectively.
GreenPrint is an innovative waste management solution for healthcare institutions and hospitals that utilizes waste diversion and total waste stream management to ensure that waste generated at a facility is leaving in the appropriate waste streams. Our GreenPrint program offers:
- Substantial up-front cost savings on day one of the program
- Yearly percentage decrease in waste costs for the length of the contract
- An on-site GreenPrint Program Manager free of charge
- Ensured compliance with all healthcare regulations
Our studies have shown that up to 90% of material disposed into regulated medical waste containers is actually municipal solid waste. This is a costly mistake considering RMW disposal costs 30 cents per pound, while municipal solid wastes only costs 10 cents per pound. In addition, roughly 45% of all material that ends up in the trash at 10 cents per pound can actually be recycled for 2 to 3 cents per pound. Correcting waste allocation practices can save a hospital hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.
The catalyst behind GreenPrint is our Sustainability Project Manager - a healthcare waste management expert who will implement and manage GreenPrint onsite. The Sustainability Project Manager will:
- Divert waste from higher cost to lower cost waste streams
- Teach GreenPrint floor by floor
- Utilize ADVISE, a web-based iPhone app to track, report, and analyze hospital compliance
- Identify the need for, and provide, training on environmental regulations and proper waste disposal
- Chair or co-chair hospital greening and sustainability committee
The goal of GreenPrint is to develop a mutually-incentivized relationship based on reducing the waste, and waste expensed, of a healthcare institution. Fill out the short form below to learn more about GreenPrint, and how it will save your hospital money starting from day one.
