The Green Healthcare Programme (GHCP) has produced three Factsheets: on Healthcare Risk Waste, General Landfill Waste and Food Waste in Irish Hospitals.
These Factsheets are of great benefit to hospitals in Ireland and, if used correctly, could lead to significant efficiencies and financial savings across the healthcare system.
The Factsheets provide an outline of the different waste types generated in Irish hospitals, giving detailed information on the sources of each stream. They outline the cost of waste for Irish hospitals, how it can be reduced and what materials can be recovered or disposed of more cheaply.
