The first step in responsible waste management is to segregate at source.
Divide waste into wet and dry waste and dispose in separate bins.
Whether it is your office or residence interact/educate your waste collector about segregation and ask them to process the waste separately.
Most of the municipalities in the Country insist on this – check the rules for your locality.
Select the right packaging substrate–
Is it made from a renewable source?
Does it lend itself to easy collection, segregation and processing?
If you are not sure then contact the brand/foodservice provider and ask these questions about their packaging.
