Reasons to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Responsible waste management in Atlanta has become more and more important as society has become increasingly concerned with the environment. Fortunately responsible waste management is not difficult; the simple phrase “reduce, reuse, recycle” points out three viable methods of limiting environmental impact. Watch this video clip for a quick look at one of the reasons to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

“Reduce, reuse, recycle” contains three equally important parts. When you only take what you need, you reduce the amount of waste that is generated. This is particularly applicable to food; food waste is a serious issue in the United States. You can also reuse old materials that have satisfied their initial purposes. From elementary projects to scrap metal art, most anything can be repurposed. Recycling helps to keep usable materials out of landfills. Most landfills are already taking on an excessive amount of waste, but recycling seeks to help.
