The three “R”s are used in waste managements commonly. They represent “Reduction, Reuse and Recovery”. As waste generation increases, processing costs increase, available landfill space. The three “R” has become the core objective of sustainable waste management (Dalhousie University, 2011).

The concept of waste reduction or waste minimization involves redesigning the product or changing Consumption, use and waste generated by the social model to prevent waste minimising the toxicity of waste produced. A common example of waste reduction. Including the use of reusable coffee cups instead of disposable coffee mugs, reduced product packaging, and buy durable products that can be repaired rather than replaced. The reduction can also be achieved by reducing the consumption of products, goods, and services. The most effective way the first thing to reduce waste is because no waste is created, so waste is the first place to reduce waste. In many cases, the product can be reduced by reusing the product. Action to take action before waste is actually produced and can also be called pre-cycle. Sometimes it may be used for the same purpose multiple times in the same form; this is known as “Reuse”. Many examples include using one-sided paper for notes and reusing disposable paper Shopping bags or using boxes as storage containers. Re-use of the product replaced Need to buy other products, so as to prevent waste. Minimise waste reducing and reusing provides several advantages, including the conservation of the use of natural resources (Dalhousie University, 2011). 

New products and waste generated in the manufacturing process to reduce the waste generated product processing and reduce costs associated with waste disposal. Not all of the discarded products can be removed, and even reusable products will need to be replaced eventually. Waste is unavoidable as a byproduct of human life, but in many ways, wasting may be transferred and recycled into valuable new materials. Glass, plastic Paper products are usually collected and the concept of waste reduction or waste minimization involves redesigning the product or changing consumption, use and waste generated by the social model to prevent waste minimising the toxicity of waste produced (SUEZ, 2017).

Not all of the discarded products can be removed, and even reusable products will eventually need to be replaced. Waste is unavoidable as a byproduct of human life (Kim, 2002), but in many ways, this waste may be transferred and recycled into valuable new materials. Glass, plastic paper products are usually collected and remodelled into new materials and products. Recycling the product offers many benefits of reducing waste (replacing the use of new materials, reducing waste generation and disposal-related costs), but recovery requires energy and inputs some new material, which reduces it to the waist level rather than reducing and reusing (Dalhousie University, 2011).

Many waste management frameworks attempt to incorporate this capability into three “R”. In England, North America, the whole of Europe and parts of Asia, are being incorporated into the waste hierarchy promote the adoption and use of “reduction, reuse, and recycling” initiatives. Waste management level puts the highest priority of waste prevention and reuses in the first place Waste recycling.

We went to investigate Lucas Heights Resource Recovery Park.tupian2

The SUEZ Organic Resource Recycling Facility is an open-air composting system that accepts only organic substances separated from sources, such as gardening organic, liquid grease traps and some commercial organic materials, including wood and sawdust. These materials are processed into high-quality compost products for home gardens, as well as public open spaces such as stadiums and park garden beds, improving the social facilities of the local community. Other high-quality compost products are used to improve soil fertility and reduce environmental hazards in the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides in vegetable, fruit and wine production (SUEZ, 2017).

SUEZ currently has 8 organic resource recovery facilities. SUEZ’s organic resource recovery facility does not accept residential (or roadside) food waste, however, our advanced resource recovery technology (ARRT) facility welcomes this ingredient through the Council and commercial and industrial contracts (SUEZ, 2017).
