Talkin' Trash With UHN

Freerange, organic, green healthcare ideas

Operation Green

Operation Green is a special program to collect unused medical supplies and donate them to communities in need around the world. With the support of dedicated UHN staff in Energy & Environment, Transportation, and Volunteer Resources, we have saved several tonnes of medical supplies from landfill and helped strained medical systems worldwide. This reduces the environmental impact of the healthcare field while increasing our global social responsibility. By diverting materials from costly landfill, this program also provides financial savings better used on patient care. Since 2011, Operation Green has worked with humanitarian organizations such as Not Just Tourists to achieve its goal.

If you’re interested in donating materials, or have questions about what supplies are needed/accepted, or want to know the next collection date, please contact us at: OperationGreen@uhn.ca
