Proper PPE Disposal

Stash your used PPE in the trash!

PPE is not recycleable. When PPE is disposed of in recycling facilities, sanitation workers often must remove it by hand. In addition to this, the elastic bands on disposable masks can get caught in machinery and cause further problems.

Throwing your used PPE away in the trash is a no effort intervention that can have positive impacts!
