Buderim Private Hospital - A local leader in sustainability for aluminium and PVC Recycling in Hospitals.

Buderim Private Hospital has been recognised as a local leader in sustainability for its commitment to aluminium and PVC Recycling in Hospitals.

Buderim, part of UnitingCare Health, has joined more than 160 hospital across Australia and New Zealand in recycling  PVC and aluminium in the hospital.

The PVC and aluminium recycling in hospitals program is an innovative solution to help reduce landfill waste and create a sustainable healthcare system in Australia.

Baxter Healthcare arranges distribution of designated recycling collection bins within the hospital, organises staff training on correct disposal and logistics for the collection of the bins. The recyclable waste is collected and delivered to a local Australian certified PVC recycler.

Baxter General Manager Australia and New Zealand, Steven Flynn, congratulated the Buderim Private Hospital on its leadership and support for both the PVC and aluminium recycling in hospitals programs.

“Baxter is proud to partner with Buderim Private Hospital to reduce the environmental footprint of our local healthcare system. Buderim Private Hospital and the other UnitingCare hospitals were among the first hospitals in Queensland to join the ‘PVC Recycling in Hospitals’ program, and the first to launch the ‘Aluminium Recycling in Hospitals’ program,” Mr Flynn said.

“Thank you to the team at Buderim Private Hospital for embracing this local sustainability initiative and leading the way to divert PVC and aluminium waste from landfill to recycling in Australia.”

For Baxter, responsible corporate citizenship advances the company’s aspirations as a healthcare leader, sparks innovation globally and reinforces the dedication of our employees to doing business the right way.

Our ANZ business is committed to product stewardship and is proud of its continued leadership in environmental sustainability including partnerships with industry groups and hospitals to recycle PVC and aluminium waste.
