Recycling is the third step in the waste hierarchy or Lansink’s Ladder, after the priorities initiated by the politician Ad Lansink in the Dutch parliament in 1979.
The waste management hierarchy indicates an order of preference for action to reduce and manage waste from most favourable to least favourable actions.
A proper application of the waste hierarchy in your work can help prevent emissions greenhouse gases, reduces pollutants , save energy, conserves resources, create jobs and stimulate the development of green technologies.
