Tips on how to Reduce Business Waste

Waste prevention is something your business can do today that can significantly reduce the amount of waste that is landfilled. Waste prevention is any practice that causes a reduction in the generation of waste. Here are a few simple and inexpensive ideas:

  • Make double-sided copies
  • E-mail or post information on an announcement board
  • Use ceramic mugs for coffee
  • Use non-glossy fax paper that does not need to be copied
  • Reuse large envelopes, boxes and packaging materials
  • Use scrap paper for notes
  • If available, buy products that can be recycled

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: This slogan represents the preferred method of waste reduction activities: Reduce the amount of waste you create, Reuse items rather than throwing them away, and if you cannot reduce or reuse the waste, then recycle it.
