Instruct employees in the waste separation method

1. Make the process open for discussion

To ensure that every healthcare employee separates waste correctly, it is important to make clear agreements. Involve employees in the waste separation process. Discuss which waste will be separated and where. Pay attention to it in the newsletter or on the intranet. For example, the Northwest Hospital introduced the Bonton with humor. They posted a funny video of actor Joep Onderdelinden on the intranet.

Sorting waste anywhere, a sustainable success!

2. Place the bins in strategic places

To make separating waste even easier, it is smart to place the Bonton in strategic places. Consider, for example, the coffee corner, the kitchen and the hallways. This way, healthcare workers and visitors don't have to walk far to throw away their waste.

Make it understandable for everyone

3. Use stickers

A handy feature of the Bonton is that they have different stickers. For example, there is a blue sticker for paper and a green sticker for organic waste. By using these colors, it is clear which waste belongs in which bin. People with different backgrounds and habits come to hospitals or healthcare institutions. Therefore it's extra important that the waste flows are understandable to everyone.
