How can you reduce waste?
The best way is to REDUCE the volume of waste the community generates.
Reducing waste means not to produce much in the first place such as shopping more carefully by looking for products with minimal packaging.
The second best way is to RE-USE.
Re-using and/or recovering waste means you can use it again without making it into a new product first.
Re-using is given priority over recycling as it provides greater savings in resource consumption.
Come in and visit our Second Chance Re-Use Shop for many examples of items for re-use.
The third best way is to REPROCESS and/or RECYCLE.
Recycling and/or reprocessing waste means using waste to make new products.
For example paper can be recycled eight times. Compost can be made out of green waste. Recycling saves landfill space.
Our aim at MPWTS is to minimise environmental impact by diverting waste destined for landfill.
