Healthcare

Healthcare facilities can’t settle for over-the-counter waste solutions. They need smart, specialized plans that meet the needs of providers, patients, and more.

Fast Facts

Putting patients first

Caring for patients requires diagnostic and therapeutic skills that rely on a range disposable items, from gloves to gowns to surgical tools. Handling medical waste safely is a science unto itself. Rubicon designs programs that are optimized for facilities large and small to carefully separate and manage the disposal of syringes, wrappers, paper products, and instruments.

  • Of the total amount of waste generated by healthcare activities, about 85% is general, non-hazardous waste
  • The remaining 15% is considered hazardous material that may be infectious, toxic, or radioactive
  • Every year, an estimated 16 billion injections are administered worldwide—but not all of the needles and syringes are properly disposed of
