Reduce waste generation to limit resource use, greenhouse gas emissions, preserve habitats and resources, and decrease management costs.
Waste uses significant land resources for landfills, contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, worsens air quality, and poses a risk to water resources. Sending waste to landfill should be a last resort after reduction, reuse and recycling options have been pursued. Let's work together to reduce waste!
