Recycle for Research at the Royal Adelaide Hospital

The Royal Adelaide Hospital Research Fund and recycling partner Royal Life Saving SA are pleased to announce the ‘Recycle for Research’ initiative.

Staff, patients, visitors and volunteers to the Royal Adelaide Hospital will be able to dispose of all recyclable products, such as bottles, cans, juice containers at the RAH with proceeds from the recycling going to the Hospitals’ very own fundraising arm, the Royal Adelaide Hospital Research Fund.

The Royal Adelaide Hospital Research Fund is the hospital’s very own fundraising arm, raising funds to benefit medical research and enhanced patient care.

Raising $188 Million towards medical research at the RAH in the past 20 years alone, the RAH Research Fund is proud of the important role it plays in supporting research advancements under the roof of the RAH in the heart of the biomed precinct on North Terrace.

The Recycle for Research bins are black and distributed throughout the Hospital with clear recycling stickers making them easy to recognise.

Proceeds from the Recycle for Research program go directly toward research and enhanced patient care at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.

Royal Life Saving SA operates as Australia’s leading water safety educator and works to prevent drowning’s across South Australia, assists to promote healthy and active lifestyles by equipping all Australians with water safety skills.
