how to reduce, reuse and recycle
Our aim is to make it easy for people and communities to reduce, reuse and recycle
If we reduce what we buy and use in the first place and reuse whenever possible, fewer things need to be recycled and the amount of waste we produce will fall.
Find out about the practical support our projects can give you to help prevent waste by going to the Waste at Home page.
You can also download our key publications which are jam-packed with information on what to do with all your waste.
