Why is Reuse Often Overlooked for Recycling?

Resource and waste management is one of the fastest-evolving sectors in the world. Over the last thirty years, industry professionals have driven the change from landfill as the go-to solution for dealing with end-of-life material to one of the sectors at the forefront of net zero. Reuse is a crucial tool for the resource and waste sector to use on its journey towards net zero and achieving a circular economy. However, reuse is often overlooked for recycling despite being higher in the waste hierarchy and only behind prevention as the ideal way to deal with resources and waste.
