The Zero Waste Hierarchy
This hierarchy is used to rank resource management strategies in order
of the highest and best use to the lowest of materials, with the aim of
minimizing the amount of waste created in the first place.
Reduce and Reuse
Preparation for Reuse
Recycling and composting are not at
the top of the hierarchy, rather these
diversion strategies are ranked below
strategies that prevent waste from
being created in the first place.
