Mad River Community Hospital shares its community's values of sustainability and "Green" focus. It is therefore embarking on numerous projects to improve its ecology and ensure a sustainable future. One is the vegetable garden - HERE is more information on that.
One is an LED project to equip the hospital with energy efficient light bulbs from Campton Electric.
Another will be the investment in composting tub which will compost nearly 350 pounds of organic matter each week. It will produce a very high quality compost which will be used in various ways by Mad River Community Hospital.
A new way the hospital is reducing the amount of solid waste it sends to the landfill is through the use of new hand sanitizer foam dispensers, producing a significant reduction of sixty percent compared to the old version.
The Green Committee conducts trash audits to ensure the hospital is recycling everything that it can. In general, the healthcare industry produces a lot of waste and Mad River Community Hospital does everything that it can to keep dispose of items correctly to minimize the impact on the environment.
