Description: Implementation of new recycling program in the Cleveland Clinic operating rooms. The OFFICE FOR A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT is spearheading the effort to bring back recycling to the OR's. With the help of multiple departments: finance, Lerner research Ins. Compliance dept., Human Resources, and material handling. A new site was found off campus that meets our needs. Meetings have been set up to assess and implement what needs to be done. This is in effort to be able to start in January 2020. The outcome is a functioning area to accept OR recyclable items for processing. This will allow the OR to become part of a recycling initiative with the majority of our waste not going into landfill.
