Waste Reduction

Waste management isn't just about recycling and garbage. Reducing the amount of waste created by individuals and businesses is an important first step in any solid waste management strategy. Using fewer products and reusing those that you do purchase not only saves natural resources, but reduces the economic and environmental costs associated with disposal.

Use the links to the left to learn about different ways that you can reduce the amount of waste that you generate.
