Going Green 

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Plano has initiated several programs to help reduce our impact on the environment. 

The BioSystem Waste Reduction Program uses eco-friendly reusable sharps containers in all of the clinical areas. The containers are collected by an outside technician that sends them to a processing center where they are opened, emptied and disinfected for reuse. One reusable container prevents 500 disposable containers from going to a landfill.  

So far in fiscal year 2016, Baylor Scott & White - Plano has prevented more than 6,500 pounds of plastic containers from going into landfills. As a whole, Baylor Scott & White Health - North Division has kept more than 405,000 pounds of disposable containers out of landfills in fiscal year 2016.
