INTRODUCTION

This publication provides an overview of the reasons and ways to better manage garbage or other household waste. While “recycle” may be a buzzword for an environmentally friendly way to manage waste, a more comprehensive approach to doing so is summarized by the “Three Rs”:

I. Reduce: Buy only what you need because a better way to reduce waste is by not creating it.

II. Reuse: If you have to acquire goods, try getting used ones or obtaining substitutes.

III. Recycle: When discarding your waste, find ways to recycle it instead of letting it go to landfill.

As a nation, we are generating more garbage and we don’t know what to do with it. Ineffective or irresponsible disposal of this waste can pollute the environment and pose a public health risk. We are running out of space in existing landfills. Citizens are discovering that there is no easy way to get rid of the garbage they once assumed could be buried or burned and forgotten. Current disposal methods threaten our health, safety, and environment, and pose additional indirect costs to society. Most industrial, commercial, and household waste is now being placed in landfills or surface impediments.  Managing Solid Waste

Waste treated in this manner may contaminate groundwater, rivers, and streams. When waste is burned, it releases hazardous gases into the air and leaves toxic residues in the form of ash. These hazardous waste byproducts find their way into humans and animals in one form or another. The U.S. is currently recycling only a small percentage of its waste. The benefits of recycling come not only from selling recycled materials and conserving resources but also from reducing expenses or from “avoided costs.”  Managing Solid Waste
