Smarter ways to reduce waste 

There's always a better way to deal with waste items. We can reduce our overall waste by making better choices when shopping and by reusing items in creative ways to lengthen their life before recycling it. Keep this simple order in mind: avoid, reduce, reuse, recycle/compost, disposal.

In addition to guidance on recycling, composting and waste disposal, you'll see some handy tips on how you can reuse items and avoid creating waste.
