It is important to collect data in order to track progress and set goals for your plastics recycling program. Here are some suggestions for data points that can be collected by the MRF/recycler and by your hospital, and some suggestions for Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that can be used to track progress. Read about these suggestions at the HPRC website.
