Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
There are three important steps to follow to minimize the amount of materials that end up as trash in landfills:
- Reduce - Take the time to purchase products that are packaged responsibly with a minimum of waste.
- Reuse - Find ways to give new life to things that might otherwise end up in the trash. Use the database below to learn how to reuse common household items.
- Recycle - Whenever possible, purchase products that are made from recycled materials. Sort your recyclables and take them to a local recycling center regularly.
