PVC Recycling in Hospitals
As the only Australian manufacturer of Intravenous (I.V.) medical fluids, Baxter is proud to partner with the Vinyl Council of Australia, Welvic and 280+ hospitals in Australia and New Zealand to divert 200+ tonnes of high-grade PVC waste from landfill annually to be recycled locally to make garden hoses and gumboots.
Aluminium Recycling Program
Baxter partners with hospitals to collect and recycle aluminium bottles of Baxter gas anaesthesia. More than 88 hospitals across Australia and New Zealand are now taking part in the program, with more than 1.2 tonnes of aluminium recycled every year.
Baxter Australia & New Zealand also collects and recycles cardboard packaging boxes from more than 970 home dialysis patients.
What is it made of?
Made from 35% recycled materials.
How can it be disposed?
Baxter’s cardboard boxes can be placed in your recycling bin after use, once the tape has been removed. Tape can be discarded in household bins and is not biodegradable.
