Waste Reduction & Recycling

Overview

Waste Reduction & Recycling

The largest sources of human-generated methane, a potent greenhouse gas, comes from improperly managed landfills. Thus, waste reduction and recycling activities reduce the potential to generate methane at landfills, as well as reduces pollutants generated from transporting waste to disposal sites.

Waste reduction and recycling activities also conserve natural resources.
