The 4 R's provides an ecologically sound and environmentally friendly approach to minimizing and managing waste and waste streams.

The 4 R's approach attacks a waste stream in a logical and methodical method by taking steps to sequentially Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover a waste stream into incremental fractions.

By eliminating the low hanging fruit and then focusing on the balance of the materials you will reduce the problem or challenge and will be able to apply a suitable solution.

At Waste.net we believe that 100% of the waste stream can be diverted from disposal, the challenge is not technology but it is economic.

The greater the percentage of the waste stream you wish to divert, typically you increase the economic challenge. So you are constantly confronted with a cost justification check and balance.

Waste.net is focused on the development of a sustainable infrastructure based on the economics of markets for recovered materials and by-products.
