Sustainable Waste Management in Healthcare Conferences

Develop the knowledge and acquire the tools needed to increase recycling and reduce waste within your healthcare facility

Hospitals and health services throughout regional Victoria are currently struggling to effectively manage their waste. Little resource recovery is taking place and contamination of the clinical and general waste streams means that often large volumes of potentially recyclable items are going to landfill. This comes at great financial and environmental cost.

Aimed at both clinical and non-clinical staff, this conference is an opportunity to hear from hospital staff within Victoria who have implemented successful resource recovery programs. It will provide skills, guidance and networking opportunities to aid attendees in identifying resource recovery opportunities within a hospital environment and strategies for successfully actioning them.
