The Healthcare Plastics Recycling Council (HPRC) drafted a set of guidelines for medical device manufacturers and designers that establishes best practices for designing recyclable medical products and packaging. We have produced an infographic listing the HPRC's 10 desirable design practices for healthcare plastics. A more thorough explanation of these practices, including a downloadable PDF, is available on the HPRC website.
