We are just starting to try and introduce and rationalise waste recycling into theatres (the trust does not recycle anything!).  If anyone else has already done something similar I would be grateful to hear.  Thank you.

RE: waste recycling in theatres

Hi Christine, sorry nobody has got back to you earlier about your enquiry  - I hope your project is going well.

There are a number of trusts who have been doing some good work with regard to recycling waste in theatres. North Bristol trust have set up a working group in theatres and have a number of projects on the go including promoting recycling awareness – what can and cannot be recycled from theatres. Additionally, Barts Health NHS Trust have done lots of work, see here for details: https://www.gaspanaesthesia.com/the-projects

The theatres team in Southampton have also done some work on improving their recycling in theatres (including taking a trip to their local recycling plant!). Let me know if you would like me to put you in touch with anyone from these trusts (most are members of this network too).
