Plastic recycling plants in hospitals.
As a physician, I learned that patients come first. Everything we use is brand new, sterilized and in optimum conditions. It took me five years to find out where everything goes: to a landfill or to an incinerator. Why? Most plastics in hospitals are polypropelene or high density polyethelene. They can be cheaply processed to be used again in other things, such as trash bins.
A group of friends and I, made and effort to start a business, locally at first, called Medical Waste Management (mwmpanama). What's your take on this?
