The downloadable Excel document below will walk you through a full economic analysis in preparation for a new recycling program, or in evaluation of an existing program. It considers baseline waste data, plastics quantities, and start-up, capital, and disposal costs for the program.
Simply follow the instructions, and fields will calculate based on your inputs.
This data can then be used to make the business case for recycling at your hospital, or to help understand and improve upon your current practices.
