The 3 W’s of Recycling at AAMC
When, where, and what?
WHEN: Starting Wednesday, March 30.
WHERE: Single stream recycling cans will be placed throughout the hospital. You’ll find them in nourishment rooms and common areas such as waiting rooms, cafeterias and cafes.
WHAT can be recycled?:
Non-confidential papers, including phone books, magazines, newspapers
Non-broken glass, including beverage containers
Plastics # 1-7; including disposable wash basins and pink plastic cups. Do not recycle items recognized by the general public as “medical” (i.e. oral syringes, IV bags).
Metals, including aluminum cans in the kitchen and beverage containers
Cardboard (we are working with our vendors to reduce the vast amount of cardboard that comes in the door. Please continue to break down the boxes)
Alkaline batteries will still be collected in separate containers so the heavy metals can be reclaimed
