Many times we think about the 3Rs (reducing, reusing and recycling waste) as the answer to sustainability and circularity. But wait, it’s not so simple.
First, think about all the stakeholders involved across this topic. There are many players
- supply chain;
- infrastructure to handle the reuse such as transportation and sterilization;
- infrastructure to handle recycling such as sorting and washing;
- landfill infrastructure; and
- lastly, energy recovery (trash-to-steam) infrastructure.
