I’m pretty sure surgery centres are a US thing. At least I’ve never heard of them in Canada. I’ve always had surgical procedures, even minor ones, done at hospitals.
Yes, I would. I said above that medical stuff mostly doesn’t count in my book. We already have enough to deal with and most medical stuff is disposable and that’s not going to change. Heck, I wouldn’t be alive today were it not for disposable medical supplies, so I have no complaints about the plastic there. But I’ll recycle anything I can and I’ll make efforts to avoid waste where I can. I’m not going to change the world myself, but if a few billion people did as I did, especially leaders of organizations, that would most certainly have an impact.
I can’t drive at all, so I agree, it would be great if they’d pick it up. We have pretty good recycling in my city. There are still things I like to recycle that aren’t picked up, such as soft plastic packaging, batteries, and electronics. Fortunately that stuff usually isn’t heavy, so I save up a month or two worth and then get the bus down to the recycling depot to drop it off.
