Once the plastics recycling program has been established and some data and metrics have been collected and validated, it is time to establish targets and goals for continuous improvement in the program. What is the difference between goals and targets? Goals provide a broad vision of what a hospital is trying to accomplish. Targets are the more specific measures that are being undertaken to achieve the goal. Learn more about setting targets and goals at the HPRC website.
