Recycling: From Cardboard Boxes to Breast Implant Packaging?
By Dr. Sutton Graham on July 27, 2008
Our facility proudly provides cosmetic surgery, non-surgical cosmetic medicine, and professional skin care for several hundred patients per year.
Doing this entails many shipments, plenty of packaging materials, innumerable containers, not to mention soda cans and bottles for our staff and patients, etc. We contracted with an office recycling company since we didn't' like seeing this going to our landfills. Now cartons, plastic bottles & aluminum cans, and yes, even plastic containers from breast implant packaging are recycled.
We also have routine trash disposal. Otherwise, we have unique waste disposal requirements. Documents with personal information are shredded. We utilize a separate regulated medical waste hauler for those materials.
We are glad to be reducing and recycling.
