Business Waste Reduction
Close the Loop


Are you in the Loop?
“Closing the loop” or buying items or packaging made from recycled materials is the third arrow in the recycling loop. Recyclables have now come full-circle: from recycling bin to a manufacturer, to the store shelf, and back to your business or home. And after using the item, you can start the loop again by recycling it again. When you buy recycled, you help create markets and manufacturers can continue to use recyclables in their products.
