Robert C. Garrett, president and chief executive officer of Hackensack University Health Network and Deirdre Imus, president and founder of The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® officially opened the new Recycling Station in the Second Street Café.  This new system  provides a more efficient, environmentally-sensitive way for us to dispose of our trash. It features five receptacles, with window boxes above each that illustrate which items to discard and where.  This new system will ensure that we recycle appropriately to reduce the amount of landfill waste we dispose as a medical center.


This marks the first of many campus-wide recycling initiatives that will help HackensackUMC achieve our target recycling rate of 35% and further our commitment to a more sustainable hospital environment.
