“Reduce, reuse, recycle” is an important mantra to keep in mind, but it is also important that you remember that not everything can be recycled. Recycling rules typically vary by city or area, and certain waste materials cannot be taken in; search the Internet to find out about your local recycling rules so you can make sure that the waste you recycle is indeed recyclable. It is also important to look out for companies that encourage you to participate in their recycling programs, despite the fact that their programs are still harmful to the environment. If you want to practice optimal commercial and industrial waste management techniques in order to keep your business environmentally friendly, the first step is always staying informed.
Once you determine which items cannot be recycled, consider the first two aspects of the mantra: reduce and reuse. Avoid purchasing and using unrecyclable products in favor of greener alternatives. If you do decide to use products that cannot be recycled, consider how you can repurpose them before making the purchase.
