Recycling of waste produced by a hospital is an essential component of hospital management. The volume of nonmedical waste, in the form of organic and non-organic materials, is often much greater than the volume of medical waste generated by a large hospital. Recycling this nonmedical waste is a much more efficient, environmentally friendly and economical alternative to disposal by dumping or other methods. The recycling project of Christian Medical College and hospital, Vellore, has been managing the large amounts of nonmedical waste from the hospital for over a decade and this can be emulated in hospital settings of a similar or smaller size.
