Both companies and individual must reduce the amount of paper produced daily. The idea of a paperless world comes to mind. Try recipes to produce your household products thus reducing the amount of plastic containers coming into the home.

To effectively reuse and recycle items that are in some form useable to others is another method to reduce the amount of waste. Clothing and household items can be donated rather than form part of your waste output.

Most modern cities have a recycling policy in place regarding the disposal of waste. Plastic, glass, aluminum and paper can be disposed of in specially marked bins for recycling.
