Single use plastic and waste is a topic frequently seen in the news and social media. Large amounts of plastic waste are created by the medical and veterinary industry as a result of improvements in hygiene and sterility.
At North Maclean Family Vet, we are committed to reducing our contribution to waste, without compromising the care of our patients. In order to provide good hygiene, and avoid contamination and infection, some items must be single-use only and must be discarded. However, we aim to collect and recycle all soft plastics that are not biologically contaminated. We aim to reduce our paper use by focusing on email and text communications. We recycle food tins, bottles, uncontaminated hard plastics and cardboard.
If you have questions about our waste practices, come down and have chat with us!
