Reduce household trash to create, a process known as "source reduction".
Source Reduction Hints
Recycle plastic bags at your grocery store or reuse plastic bags on your next trip to the store.
Buy products made from or packaged in recycled or returnable containers. Some packaging made from recycled materials is marked with a recycling symbol. If the box is gray on the inside, this means the box was made from recycled material.
Buy items in the largest possible size because you will use fewer containers.
Reuse as many materials as possible.
Other Ways to Recycle
Electronics are recyclable. Dauphin County Department of Solid Waste Management and Recycling operates a Recycling Center for electronics and other recyclable items.
