This year, the U.S. will pay $3.6 billion to dispose of more than 12 billion lbs. of regulated medical waste (RMW). Within this waste stream is an estimated 3 billion lbs of scientific plastics.
Because these plastics are “single-use,” virtually 100% of this waste is either incinerated or buried in landfills.
As a result, 3 billion lbs. worth of new single-use products must be fracked and cracked, or drilled out of the ground every year.
Polycarbin provides a circular solution to the take-make-waste model surrounding the health sciences, starting with laboratory plastics.
With on-site sortation made simple with our intuitive diversion bins, coupled with the visibility offered by Polycarbin’s proprietary waste analytics software, we are able to rescue valuable plastics trapped within the regulated medical waste stream and transform them into useful circular economy lab products.
Polycarbin has found a unique way to divert some that waste and give it new life, saving dollars for scientists, and plastic from oceans and landfills.
The Carbin™ helps you make the most of your recycling practice. Two slots. Intuitive cues. One-click pickup
