Closed petition Require recycling systems in NHS clinical areas for plastic healthcare waste

Across the NHS, there are no means of sustainably disposing of uncontaminated plastic clinical waste (namely sterile packaging). This means that huge quantities of potentially recyclable plastic are disposed of daily and sent to landfills or incinerators, greatly harming our environment.

More details

There are no formal recycling plans or mechanisms in place across NHS clinical environments, which we believe is wholly unsustainable. We want to have this changed and for recycling to be the new norm when it comes to uncontaminated clinical and non-clinical waste in the healthcare industry. See
