Evangelical Minimizes Environmental Footprint by Making Recycling a Priority
The trucks going to the local landfills are lighter these days since Evangelical Community Hospital, in partnership with Hometown Disposal, introduced single stream recycling at the facility that employs over 1,600 individuals.
Single stream recycling allows the facility to have its recyclable waste co-mingled into single containers removing the need to sort out plastics, cans, newspapers, magazines, and more. The implementation of this method allows the Hospital to recycle more products and waste than ever before. By using the single stream method more types of plastics are acceptable for recycling including #4, a common plastic used at Evangelical.
