To provide segregated recycling facilities throughout the hospital for staff, patients and visitors to use. We currently have 72 recycling bins dotted in most of the administration areas of the hospital and have recently sourced a different type of recycling bin for clinical areas to meet both infection control and fire safety requirements. The initial 72 bins were part funded by coca-cola enterprises ltd and Surrey County Council with involvment with RECOUP and REMADE to drive it forward.
