Pioneered by anaesthesia professionals, RecoMed is a PVC take-back scheme in the UK that recycles plastic used in healthcare. An example for Europe’s circular economy, it is run by project partners Axion Consulting, a resource recovery specialist and the British Plastics Federation, and funded by VinylPlus. RecoMed recycling bins are provided free of charge, along with educational posters, stickers, training sessions and communication materials. Granulated plastic from the recycled materials is used in making 100% recycled products for the horticultural industry for example, such as tree ties.
