Health Care - Zero Waste Box™

WHAT IS THIS ZERO WASTE SYSTEM?

The Health Care Zero Waste System allows you to recycle any item, equipment, or device found to aid patient healthcare or mobility in the home. This includes crutches, artificial limbs, splints, canes, walkers, wheelchairs, back and neck supports, braces, blood pressure monitors, stethoscopes, scales, massagers, hot water bottles, tub safety rails, and ergonomic wrist supports.

WHAT DO YOU GET?

  • A Zero Waste Box to be used for collecting and shipping, complete with sturdy plastic liner
  • Return shipping (the label is already affixed to your Box)
  • The complete processing and recycling of your waste (see how your waste is recycled)
  • A Zero Waste Consultant to address any concerns and answer any questions

HOW IT WORKS
