The Waste Hierarchy
Recycling is great when you’ve finished using an item, but in an ideal world the best way to prevent waste is not to produce it in the first place.
Tips to reduce waste
Waste prevention is about all of us making decisions about the products and services that we buy, use and then no longer want. Do we throw these things away when no longer needed, forever losing the materials they were made of?
Recycling maybe isn’t the first thing you think of when you’re trying to adjust to a zero waste lifestyle. However, instead of a product being treated as waste and disposed of, it can instead be recycled into another item to keep the natural resources originally used in circulation.
Zero Waste Map
We have produced a map of the Liverpool City Region populated with a range of community groups, reuse organisations and charities, with a brief description of who they are and how to get in touch with them.
Stop waste, save money
With the cost of living on the rise, we’re all trying to make our household budgets stretch a little further – and by aspiring to live a zero waste lifestyle we can save money.
