What are the 5r ?? Science ch 17

Dear Student ‚Äč ‚ÄčThere are actually five steps for generating minimum waste. These are Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover. This is to conserve our natural resources, and reduce pollution. Five examples Refuse is buying only that stuff, what we really need. By doing so, we can save earth's resources. We can repair or share things as well. Example of reduce is say no to extra packings, single usable or disposable items. For example paper plates, juice boxes etc. Instead of throwing old silica gel packets we can reuse them by placing them in our documents to protect them from moisture and mildew. This is an example of reusing things. Recycle - Many things can be recycled and reused. This saves money and reduce pollution as well. For example paper that is a solid waste can be recycled into new paper products. By recycling paper waste we can save thousand of trees from cutting down. Recover- Any waste product can be turned into many new products. For example used frying oil can become fuel. Regards
