Let Karen help you with with:

1) Source Reduction for Business or  Household: 

The philosophy or practice of not creating or generating waste materials.
Source reduction - reducing waste before it is generated - is often the lowest cost approach to managing waste for businesses as well as homeowners.

  • Educating homeowners on non-toxic alternatives to household cleaning chemicals and pesticides
    /herbicides can be an important part of household hazardous waste (HHW) collection events.
  • Using returnable packaging systems in transport of goods and supplies can eliminate up to 95% of
    packaging waste.
Disposal of Items: The final and environmentally sound disposition of a material that cannot be recycled, reused or renewed. Purchasing choices made every day, whether for the home, business, institution or industry, affect whatgoes in the trash and, ultimately, what ends up at a landfill or incinerator. By making choices that support reusable, recyclable or compostable products and packaging, you can reduce the amount of waste needing to be disposed. How we handle what is left - the waste we have to throw away – can take advantage of efficient and durable waste handling equipment and new collection and transport technologies that increase compaction and reduce costs and environmental impact.
