Reduce, Reuse and Recycle Your Waste

recycling-signYou can practise the 3 Rs in your daily lives – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle (in order of sequence). The sequence is important, as source reduction is usually the best way to minimise waste while recycling still has some impact on the environment and should be done last. Waste minimisation helps to conserve resources and reduce energy usage in the production and transportation process.

Visit the Zero Waste Singapore website to learn more about how you can Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
