There are three basic principles behind all recycling programs. Reduce the volume of waste generated whenever possible, Reuse items whenever possible (including transitioning some practices from disposable back to reusable) and Recycle any items where there is an option to reprocess, which extends the useful life of the item and eliminates it from the disposal volume.

Some examples are below:

Regulated medical waste containers reusable versus corrugated boxes
Sharp containers reusable versus disposable plastic containers
Suction canisters reusable versus disposable plastic
Formalin & xylene process
Recycle at the facility versus shipping it offsite for disposal
Paper & cardboard recycling
Shipping for processing and reuse versus commingling with solid waste
