MCCG Introduces Internal Recycling Program

MCCG Introduces Internal Recycling Program
Becomes More Environmentally Friendly Facility
MACON, GA (Monday, Jan. 9, 2011) – Last week, in an effort to become a more efficient and environmentally friendly facility, The Medical Center of Central Georgia in partnership with Advanced Disposal introduced a single stream recycling program
throughout the main campus. The initiative is part of the hospital's “Green Smart” enterprise, which develops, investigates, and promotes environmentally and financially beneficial initiatives that lead to a desirable and sustainable culture. Green recycling containers with educational labels have been placed throughout the hospital for employees, patients and their families, and vendors to use.
Single stream recycling allows consumers to recycle mixed-grade papers, plastic containers and some metals in a single container. The primary benefits are increased ease and convenience of recycling, and a reduction in the amount of space needed for containers. MCCG ran a pilot program throughout December to educate consumers about what can and cannot be put in the recycling before fully launching the program last week. 
MCCG looked to the expertise of Advanced Disposal, which serves 48,000 commercial and 775,000 residential customers' waste collection, transfer, disposal and recycling needs throughout the southeastern United States.
