One Red Bag Solutions hospital client in Portland Oregon is finding a smart way to divert medical grade plastics away from the landfill by using a company who converts the plastics to oil. This medium sized hospital was able to avoid sending 38 tons of medical waste by using Red Bag Solutions Steam Sterilization and Maceration (SSM) to process their sharps containers and evacuation containers.
