Reduce, Reuse or Donate
When items are sent to landfill, it unnecessarily wastes resources and damages the environment. The Scottish Government and the EU have set targets for reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill.
Everybody produces waste as it is almost impossible to go through your day without creating a certain amount of waste in some form or another. However, it is possible to reduce, reuse and recycle the amount of waste that is produced and therefore limit the impact this has on our natural environment.
Did you know that 80% of what you throw out can be recycled and half of that can be composted?
