The Four "R's"


This program introduces the four-R's of solid waste management: Reducing, Reusing, Recycling and Response.

Reducing waste requires foresight. It requires us to think about the items we purchase and the activities we participate in and to consider the amount of solid waste related to those items and activities.

Reusing draws on our creativity as well as our foresight when selecting purchases.

Recycling is becoming a common occurrence and easier to carry out as the number of office and curbside recycling programs increases across the country.

Responding requires that we let both manufacturers and public officials know that we as a society and as individuals are concerned about our environment and the preservation of natural resources. This can be done directly through letter writing programs as well as through our purchasing choices.
