Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

When biodegradable waste (waste that rots down such as paper or food waste) is sent to a landfill site, it breaks down to produce a mixture of gases.  These gases include carbon dioxide and methane which scientists believe are responsible for climate change.

National stance

By reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill, we can all help reduce the production of these gases and help limit global warming and climate change.  We can all help by reducing, reusing and recycling.

The waste that cannot be recycled, composted or treated is currently sent to landfill but in the future we will need to look for alternatives such as thermal treatment.
