Anne Arundel Medical Center is our first Businesses for the Bay Networking Partner from the medical sector!
They were the first acute care facility in Maryland to attain the LEED Gold level of certification for green building and environmentally friendly techniques. Their environmental-focused education wall in their “LEED lobby” raises awareness about environmental issues. They have a robust environmental sustainability program that includes annual Earth Day fairs, community trash clean-ups through Project Clean Stream, and e-waste recycling collections.
They also install medication disposal drop boxes to offer the public a place to dispose of unused or expired medications; drop boxes promote the safe collection and proper destruction of unused medications. Medicine placed in trash containers may represent a danger to children and flushing medications should be the last resort due to potential effects on plants, fish and water.
