Can Your Personal Medical Devices Be Recycled?

·1 min

Most of the plastic in medicine cabinets is difficult to dispose of or recycle. Recycling centers struggle to handle small medical items, leading to increased costs for recyclers. Some medical products, like needles that have come into contact with bodily fluids, must be properly disposed of. Governments and pharmacies offer guidance for safe medication disposal. However, recycling plastic medical devices remains a challenge, with limited solutions available. Efforts are being made to develop reusable and environmentally friendly alternatives.
