Maximising the recycling and reclamation of my waste

Summary

Before choosing to dispose of your waste, consider your other options: -

  • prevention: the best waste is waste that is not produced;
  • reuse (e.g. returnable packaging);
  • recycling (e.g. plastics, paper, wood, etc.);
  • reclamation (e.g. the agricultural reclamation of sewage sludge)

Key points

  • It is not recommended to contaminate recoverable waste (cardboard, scrap, glass, etc.) by mixing it with non-recoverable waste during storage.
