Re-source Recycling Offers the best Medical Product Destruction Service

Re-source Recycling is a reliable product recycling and destruction company that specializes in several kinds of product destruction including medical product destruction.

Unsafe and unusable medical devices should be destroyed rather than disposed of in the trash because further damaging fallouts can occur if they are used further. Incineration is generally the method of choice for safe disposal of pharmaceutical products because toxic contaminations and pathogens are destroyed by high temperatures.

Incineration is usually chosen because it is also an environmentally-friendly option since the material will not have to fill up the landfill space.

Re-source Recycling provides reliable medical product destruction services via incineration, shredding and other means for hospitals, manufacturers, distributors, retailers and so forth.

Medical product destruction News

Canadians are throwing away too much garbage, sometimes out of ignorance or laziness, and it is costing recycling programs millions of dollars in a year.

A lot of cities are struggling to minimize their contamination rates and clean up recycling but there are trade-offs and high costs associated with the potential solutions. In cities with the dirtiest recycling, Edmonton and Toronto, contamination can rise by 25 percent.

Mark Badger, executive vice-president of Canada Fibers which runs 12 plants that sort up to 60 percent of the recycling collected in Ontario, said it is awful and shameful. Badger has seen everything in garbage from blood bags and IV tubing to needles, syringe, and sharps

It is expensive to process contamination as recycling and then end up sending it to the dump as garbage. Jim McKay, general manager of solid waste management for the City of Toronto, said that you have to pay twice to manage garbage.

Especially in cities such as Toronto where everything moves into the same bin, contamination can damage other materials as it moves through the system. Tons of perfectly good recyclables can be turned into garbage or reduce their values and make them more difficult to sell to offset the cost of the recycling programs.

According to McKay, each percentage point reduction in contamination may reduce recycling costs in Toronto by $600,000 to $1 million in a year.
