Our recycling policy revolves around the '3Rs' - reduce, reuse and recycle. First, reduce the amount of material items that you are responsible for by mindful purchasing. Next, reuse material items for other purposes when they are no longer useful or give them to others for reuse. Finally, recycle what can no longer be used.
Recycling conserves natural resources and reduces the amount of energy needed to produce products and thus the amount of greenhouse gasses released into the atmosphere. The ultimate, sustainable goal is Zero Waste.
