      Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

While recycling is part of the solution for preserving landfill space and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, there are other ways to decrease the amount of waste generated at home, work and special events. Reusing reusable items and reducing the use of disposable items are actions we can all take before even considering recycling.

No recycling program is truly successful unless recyclables collected are transformed into marketable products and then purchased by you. To create a demand for recycled product, make sure to purchase paper (computer, stationery, legal, white, envelopes and newspaper) that contains recycled materials. When shopping, buy those items that say, "Made from recycled materials" and have the highest percentage of post-consumer recycled content (any material that the public has already used or recycled). Look for these recycled-content items for your home or business:

  • Clothing and shoes
  • Children's toys and playground equipment
  • Garden tools
  • Carpet and carpet pads
  • Plastic lumber for planters, decks and benches
  • Motor oil
  • Floors and countertops
  • Rain gutters
  • Packaging materials
  • Paper products like tissue and towels
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Writing or computer paper and envelopes

Here are some reusable alternatives to try:

  • Use washable cloths instead of throwaway wipes
  • Buy products made of recycled materials
  • Buy rechargeable batteries
  • Buy cloth napkins that you can wash instead of paper you throw away
  • Buy washable plates and cups for picnics instead of disposables
  • Buy razors with replaceable blades
  • Seek out reusable or refillable containers that hold shampoo, soap, etc.
  • Use plastic or glass containers with lids instead of aluminum foil, plastic bags or plastic wrap

When asked the question "Paper or plastic?" Why not bring your own reusable cloth shopping bags instead. Using a reusable cloth bag when going shopping at any store will help divert tons of unnecessary paper and plastic bags produced and disposed of everyday in landfills. Cloth bags also hold a lot more, so there are fewer trips back and forth from the car. and the cloth carrying handles are more comfortable on your hands than paper or plastic handles.

Your choices and efforts

can make a significant difference in the success of

Newcastle and our nation's recycling programs.

Please recycle !!!
