The continuing increase in waste loads means we are running much earlier than expected out of landfill capacity. The available landfill space will not last for long for many towns, if waste levels continue to rise at current levels. It has become very urgent to manage urban solid waste, building waste, toxic waste and so on.
To enforce the 3R Approach, all people, societies, and organizations should do their utmost——reduce, reuse, recycle.
These three ‘R’ terms are a vital aspect of sustainable living, as they aim to minimize the amount of garbage we have to throw away. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle:
It’s easy, really!
- Decrease the amount of waste you are making.
- Prior to replacing them, reuse items as much as you can.
- Wherever practicable, recycle items.
We can take actions by using the 3 ‘R’s concepts to minimize the space required for dump sites to dispose of waste materials.
