Thanks for your question. This is a real dilemma. I consulted with the providers of PD solutions. For patients living in cities, they ask patients to consult with their local waste management program to confirm if these materials are accepted in the curbside recycling program because municipality rules are so variable. For patients living in rural areas, I am not aware of specific strategies to handle waste as this likely varies greatly in different regions and countries. It would be best to try to speak to local authorities in your area.
