Each year, American hospitals discard 7,000 tons of clean, usable medical supplies worth over $20 billion. Brand new consumable supplies are disposed of due to stringent regulations or inventory turn over. Critical pieces of equipment, such as baby warmers or ultrasound machines, are discarded when hospitals and clinics upgrade to newer models.
