Hospital Waste

What if you could divert your waste from landfill, reduce your waste handling costs, reduce collections from your site, reduce your carbon footprint and even generate revenue?

We’ll show you how you can.

Typical issues:

Hospital waste consists of a significant amount of both packaging and food waste. In the NHS over 9 million meals are wasted every year, costing over £27m. Each NHS hospital, depending on size, can dispose of up to 2.6 tons of food waste per week.

Typically this is disposed of as general waste to landfill or waste to energy through the use of food waste bins, with daily collections from site. This is an extremely costly and inefficient process, incurring thousands of HGV miles each week and making it difficult to meet either budget or environmental standards targets.

The NHS is under significant pressure to reduce costs and dealing with food waste is costly and can be a major headache for the health sector. Typically food waste is carried to unsightly bins, which require frequent collections to avoid odour and potential vermin problems.
