Year of Publication: 2009
Abstract: This factsheet addresses the economic considerations and practical aspects involved in setting up an effective hospital waste management system. Focused on alleviating concerns about budgets and investments, the document provides insights into the costs associated with essential equipment such as bins, bags, trolleys, and other waste management tools. Divided into two parts, the first section explores market options for these items, while the latter offers case studies of two hospitals (a 300 and a 30-bedded facility), highlighting their investments and cost-minimizing strategies. The aim is to provide valuable information to institutions considering waste management initiatives and promote affordable yet efficient solutions.
