Despite the throwaway culture we now live in, there is pressure from the government and environmentalists, for businesses in all sectors to play their part in reducing waste. Where this isn’t possible, people are being encouraged to recycle and repurpose as much waste as possible.
In the dental practice, professionals can do their bit by ensuring effective segregation of different waste streams according to the type of treatment or disposal they require.
Initial Medical’s #Followthecolourcode campaign has served to highlight the Department of Health’s best practice guidelines for the colour coding of waste.
The eight different colours allocated to specific waste streams (orange, white, blue, yellow, tiger, red, purple and black) help to clearly distinguish between waste streams, grouping together items according to the threat they pose to people and the environment.
