Recycling is just one of the 3 R’s in the Reduce-Reuse-Recycle loop, and while it plays a key role in helping the environment, preventing waste from the start is just as important. We can reduce the amount of waste we generate by reducing the amount of products we use and reusing items whenever possible. Here are some ways to reduce and reuse.
Buying used items keeps the demand for new items low, which in turn, helps reduce the amount of materials needed to make new items. Donating used items helps keep the cycle going. If donating items, please call ahead to find out which items are accepted.
