Recycle

Definition

Recycling and composting refers to supporting and expanding systems to keep materials in their original product loop and to protect the full usefulness of the materials.

Recycling & Composting

  • Support and expand systems to keep materials in their original product loop and to protect the full usefulness of the materials
  • Maintain diversion systems that allow for the highest and best use of materials, including organics
  • Recycle and use materials for as high a purpose as possible
  • Develop resilient local markets and uses for collected materials wherever possible
  • Provide incentives to create clean flows of compost and recycling feedstock
  • Support and expand composting as close to the generator as possible (prioritizing home or on site or local composting wherever possible)
  • Whenever home/decentralized composting is not possible, consider industrial composting, or if local conditions require/allow, anaerobic digestion
