Reduce, Reuse, Donate

Eliminating waste before it is created! Source Reduction involves the design, manufacture, purchase, or use of materials or products to reduce the amount of waste generated. It includes reuse, waste elimination, package reduction and substitution.

Why is Source Reduction important? 

Source Reduction is at the top of the solid waste management hierarchy because it is generally superior to both recycling and disposal from an environmental and economic perspective. Source reduction is a pro-active, practical way to preempt the need to collect, process, and/or dispose of trash and recyclables by preventing their generation up front.
