Medical device recycling company MediCycle announces that it will begin collaborating with industry thought leaders to develop best practices for helping health care go green, as part of its membership with Practice Greenhealth.

The company also announced a 40% growth in its medical device recycling program over 2009 levels. MediCycle offers custom recycling programs to reduce hospital waste disposal fees by recycling metal and plastic from medical devices.

MediCycle also offers a new EP catheter recycling program, which allows hospitals to sell their used, excess, or expired EP catheters in order to create revenue through precious metal rebates.

Practice Greenhealth is a membership and networking organization for health care institutions that are engaged in helping lower the industry’s environmental footprint.
