Hospital Pollution Prevention Program

The California Department of Public Health has worked with hospitals statewide to develop plans that assist in pollution prevention. These plans include goals for the virtual elimination of mercury, implementing systems improvements, as well as lessening the creation of solid, medical, and hazardous waste.

Documents include: 

Hospital Waste Reduction Posters and Stickers

CalRecycle hosts Encapsulated Post Script (EPS) versions of the "Know Where to Throw" poster and sticker. EPS files are very large high quality digital files used by professional graphic artists and professional printers to create high definition reproductions. The poster is a great educational tool to inform staff about red bag and non-red-bag waste. The poster and sticker are available for health care facilities and agencies who wanted to reproduce their own copies.
