PVC recycling scheme
I am a Deputy Charge Nurse of a Recovery Unit in Scotland
I am about 2 months into a Q.I project of reducing our clinical waste by maximising correct waste segregation procedures.
I am also in contact with the MDT in regards with doing a pilot study in Main Recovery to use a PVC recycling company (RECOMED, in partnership with AXION) to create a circular economy for anaesthetic masks/ o2 masks/saline bags and nasal canula AKA the majority of our clinical waste! This is still in talking stages & I have many big hoops to jump through to get this project underway, procurement being one of the biggest ones.
Any insight into previous similar studies and how to get around big national contracts so I can commence this pilot study & test/evidence benefits/drawbacks to PVC recycling? anybody worked alongside AXION/RECOMED before?
Any input would be great as its starting to feel like an unachievable conquest but I am determinded to keep pushing for change!
