22.3.1 Reduction strategies
Reduction strategies are the ways that a household or community may use to try to reduce or minimise the amount of solid waste they produce. This approach is generally more relevant in affluent homes and societies with a wasteful lifestyle. For example, people with more money may not worry about throwing household items away when they can afford to buy replacements. In a business context, using two-sided photocopying of a document reduces the paper used and also therefore the waste produced.
