Recycling Begins November 1

Duke Raleigh Hospital begins piloting a recycling program on Friday, November 1.

Employees, patients, and their families may recycle mixed beverage containers that include #1 and #2 plastic bottles and jugs, aluminum cans, aluminum foil, steel cans, and #5 yogurt cups. At this time, items such as glass and plastic food containers will not be part of our recycling program.

“A healthy environment leads to healthy people,” said Neal Seigler, director of environmental and nutritional services at Duke Raleigh Hospital. “We are committed to cultivating programs that improve the experience of our patients, their loved ones, and our team members. We are excited to make a broader impact on our environment and community by diverting more waste from our landfills.”

Visitors and patients can use our blue, 24-gallon recycling cans in the Café, Emergency Department, and our Same Day Surgery Department on the first floor of the hospital.
