St. Louis Recycling Mission

January 6, 2012

Picture 195 pickup trucks weighing 3,500 lbs. each (341 tons total) and that’s what Mercy Hospital St. Louis saved from landfills in 2010. The recycling program began in 2008 as a small committee and has grown into a hospital-wide effort to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Mercy’s recycling program is currently featured on a local HEC-TV show called Innovations. To view the story, click here and then under “Segments” click “Mission of Mercy.”
