Precycling

Precycling is source reduction and reuse. In most waste management planning, the hierarchy is Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle (3R’s waste management)). Reduction and reuse are the first lines of defence against increasing waste volume. Precycling is those actions taken before recycling becomes an option. The consumers first question; Do I need the product or service? Or is it a desire? Purchase an as opposed to a disposable item. See 8R´s waste hierarchy, Closed-loop system
