Recycle While You Shop

image of recycled productsCan you purchase items made from recycled paper? Can you buy goods in bigger sizes? Why not elect goods with minimal packaging? Pre-cycle so you don't have to recycle.

Packing comprises about 40% of the solid waste stream. Whether purchasing food, laundry detergents, or paper products, consider the following before making your selections:

  • Look for items that don't require packaging. This includes fresh produce or dry goods free of clear wraps, boxes and foam trays.

  • Avoid individually wrapped portions such as cheese slices, fruit or single serving containers like juice.

  • Select concentrated products such as frozen juice, fabric softeners or sauces that can be mixed in reusable containers.

  •  Purchase the largest size or quantity practical. Buying in bulk greatly reduces waste.

Make Recycling a Habit for Life

Try to recycle and pre-cycle at every opportunity. What you buy today produces garbage tomorrow. Better buying behavior and responsible recycling create a cleaner world for everyone.
