A number of disposal options are available to healthcare facilities to deal with the non-regulated mixed plastic waste they generate. To help healthcare facilities make a more informed choice, HPRC undertook a life cycle assessment (LCA) literature survey on the environmental impacts of various plastics disposal methods. HPRC’s approach to the survey and its results are described in the HPRC website.
