On Waste Reduction.

Waste reduction maybe the preferred approach to promoting recycling alone. Waste reduction has such a vast potential for benefits it cannot be totally predicted. How much waste reduction is achievable depends on how much effort is made. Success in reducing waste starts with human actions and choices.

Waste reduction has several aspects, all of which should be addressed. One is toxicity reduction, in which the nature of the waste is changed by reducing manufacturer's use of toxic materials in consumer products. Another is volume reduction – cutting the amount of waste generated by using less material in the first place. Waste reduction also includes encouraging the production of products that can be recycled more easily, such as shifting from multi-material to one-material packaging.

Other options to reduce wastes include the redesign of products, material use changes, and restrictions on specific product types.actors and requires an examination of opportunities.
