ST. PAUL, Minn., March 23, 2016 /3BL Media/ – The Healthcare Plastics Recycling Council (HPRC), announced today the debut of its new website. Key features of the site include a refreshed design, more engaging user experience, enhanced content, and optimization for mobile devices. The website redesign comes as HPRC nears its five year anniversary.

HPRC brings together multiple stakeholders to improve recycling of plastic products and packaging in healthcare. As such, the new website provides access to guidance, resources and tools intended to help manufacturers, hospitals and recyclers better understand the opportunities for healthcare plastics recycling and how to overcome perceived challenges associated with it.

Visitors to the site can find product design guidelines that enhance end-of-life recyclability, templates to build the business case for a plastics recycling program, case studies from successful recycling programs, recent plastics recycling research, and an interactive presentation on how to implement a plastics recycling program in a patient care setting, among other tools.

“HPRC members work collaboratively to inspire and enable sustainable recycling solutions for plastic materials used in the delivery of healthcare,” says Lauren Cranmer, Office of Global Sustainability at Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD). “BD and other member companies can use this website as a resource center for our work and an educational portal for those seeking technical input, tools and best practices around recycling plastics in clinical settings of hospitals.”

Additional content features of the website include a blog that combines HPRC news and thought leadership with relevant industry headlines, and a member spotlight section that introduces that people and passion behind HPRC’s member organizations.
