Reducing waste is the one of the best ways of managing waste and helps a great deal in protecting the environment.

Ways you can reduce waste are:

  • Buy goods which have a long life such as rechargeable batteries. Wvoid 'disposable' items such as plastic and cardboard tableware
  • Buy goods in large containers rather than lots of small ones
  • Buy concentrated products and refill packs where possible
  • Use both sides of sheets of paper and use scrap paper for notes, etc
  • Buy goods sold in recyclable, returnable or refillable packaging. Avoid 'overpackaged' goods

Reducing waste saves energy, reduces litter, saves landfill and saves valuable raw materials.
