HOW TO RECYCLE MEDICAL EQUIPMENT
Today more than ever cost saving measures in the health care industry are a hot topic. And one important cost factor, especially for hospitals, is the use and reuse of medical equipment. Thirty years ago, used medical equipment from hospitals was usually just disposed of. Today however it is not uncommon for used medical devices to be cleaned and reused instead of simply being thrown away.
Regulated Medical Equipment Recycling
Devices from the areas of nursing, orthopedics, cardiology and surgery are more common to be reprocessed than those from other areas. It is interesting to note that the FDA also dictates how often a certain device can be reused.
Cost Savings and Environmental Benefits
Today, about 70% of all U.S hospitals make use of some kind of reprocessing program. Generally, bigger hospitals are more inclined to participate in such a program than smaller ones, as they will gain more sizable savings out of the program. It is still surprising though, considering that the program can bring hospitals annual savings ranging from $200,000 to $2 million. Important factors are of course the size of the hospital and its compliance level. It is estimated that in 2012 reprocessing programs resulted in more than $336 million in cost savings for hospitals in the U.S. But most importantly for the environment this meant that about 10.5 million pounds of medical equipment did not wind up as waste in landfills across the country.
Ethical Medical Equipment Recycling
So how does a hospital or other medical facility decide which third party company to choose? We are an ethical electronics recycling company that offers a one stop solution for the recycling of medical devices. One of our benefits is that we offer free pick up of all medical devices by our friendly staff.

Our team of specialists will determine whether the medical devices can be reprocessed for reuse, or if not, then they are recycled for their precious metals and materials. As an added benefit it is not uncommon for the customer to receive payment from us for the materials and parts that are being recycled. It should also be pointed out that all recycling processes at our company are performed ethically, with the environment in mind, and our customers can be assured that their devices will not wind up in a landfill in a third world country.
