{Past Event} - Members Only Sharing Call: Tracking Materials and Wastes with Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center

November 9, 2015 - 12:00 pm - November 9, 2015 - 1:00 pm -- Eastern Standard Time


Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) has had dedicated waste managers since moving to their new site in Lebanon, New Hampshire in 1991 (now a 2 million square foot campus). In 2014, DHMC generated 2677 tons of solid waste and had a 32 percent recycling rate. They autoclave general infectious waste onsite and have a robust pharmaceutical waste management program.

Join Marc Morgan, Manager of Waste, Recycling and Training, as he describes the methods used to track the weights, costs and revenues of Dartmouth-Hitchcock's various waste streams. Marc will share DHMC's exemplary Excel workbook used for managing all of their waste and financial data. Marc's step-by-step approach can help others institute processes to ensure accurate measurement and data collection in order to identify opportunities for improved waste management.

Learning Objectives
