We can help keep as much waste as possible out of landfills through recycling, composting, reusing and waste reduction solutions. By diverting waste from landfills, we can benefit both economically and environmentally. Here are the main recycling signs for the 3 “R” s:
Reuse or strategic procurement can reduce the amount of waste produced, and proper recycling or composting can find new uses for waste materials. Sending materials to landfills creates harmful methane emissions and is also a more expensive option.
The 3 ‘R’s for better environments
Reduce, reuse, recycle — the three “R” s are an important part of living sustainably because they help reduce the amount of waste we have to throw away.
It’s really easy!
- Reduce the amount of waste you produce.
- Reuse items as much as possible before replacing them.
- Recycle as much as possible.
Using 3 ‘r’s also helps to minimize the space needed in landfills where waste is disposed.
