Waste Reduction for Hospitals

Create a Plan to Reduce Hospital Waste

Hospitals are under pressure to stay compliant and sustainable while also controlling costs. Our hospital waste management experts will help you evaluate your hazardous, non-hazardous, and biomedical waste streams and develop a comprehensive waste minimization plan.

Lower Your Costs of Hospital Waste Management

In addition to reducing hospital waste volume, Triumvirate helps clients lower costs by properly categorizing and segmenting wastes. We work with you to develop systems and training to ensure hospital staff are placing wastes most cost-effectively. We’ve found that up to 90% of material disposed into regulated medical waste containers is actually municipal solid waste. This is a costly mistake considering the high cost of regulated medical waste disposal. Correcting waste allocation practices can save a hospital hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.
