Recycling is the process of recovering waste materials to create other useful items, which is critically important to reducing waste, preventing the extraction of virgin resources and achieving a circular economy. While recycling conserves resources and reduces emissions, it should be viewed as a last resort after reusing and repurposing materials.
Blue Action: Recycle and divert materials from landfill for their “highest and best use” with approved waste haulers.
This includes having the proper bin design with relevant, clear signage and a sorting program.
“Highest and best use” defined by the TRUE Zero Waste certification.
*Note: material streams will be based on available infrastructure in your region and from your waste hauler.
