Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

The 3R’s are sometimes called the waste hierarchy.
- The concept behind the first R, is to reduce or limit the number of purchases that you make.
- The concept behind the second R is to reuse is to reuse items before replacing them.
- The concept behind the third R is to recycle items to ensure that items or their components are put to some new purpose as much as possible.
