The "Waste Hierarchy" ranks the different ways in which we can dispose of our waste in order of sustainability or relative environmental benefits. You are the most important person in the process of waste prevention. By spending a small amount of time and thought on the 3 Rs - Reduce Reuse and Recycle - you can make a big difference to the amount of waste that goes into landfill. The 3 Rs are simple principles that will help you to do a little and change a lot!
The first level of the waste hierarchy is Reduce. Think about how you can prevent creating waste. Avoid buying products that have excessive layers of packaging or find out if there is a more durable, longer lasting alternative to the product you want to buy.
If we don't produce as much waste in the first place, then we have less to deal with in the end.
The second level is Reuse.
This involves using a product more than once in its original form, for its original purpose or for an alternative, with or without reconditioning.
Reusing items means that you do not have to buy new ones. This saves resources.
Recycling recovers value from things that would otherwise simply be disposed of. It diverts away from landfill which extends the life of our landfill site and helps conserve our countryside and reduces pollution. It means that fewer natural resources are being used and energy is saved. The more people that recycle, the cheaper the recycled products will be.
