Auditing your hospital’s plastics recycling program is a key element of improving your program. This can be divided into two parts: (1) auditing the plastic materials that are collected and (2) auditing the plastics collection, segregation, and transfer process. It is also important to consider auditing both your own facility and your recycler's. Read about how you can effectively complete this process at the HPRC website.
