This was one of our best educational events: the focus was on recycling and prizes were awarded to all those who contributed an item that could be recycled and is not being recycled right now! from the vinyl tubing used by perfusion to the tiniest one: pulled staples! We will set up a collection process for each one of these items.

It's not too late so send your ideas to be evaluated: recycle@musc.edu
