Expert Answer:

We can use the three R's wherever possible to reduce the waste being generated i.e. Reduce, Recycle and Reuse.

(A simple and obvious choice is to cut back on the amount of waste by using and throwing out less in the first place. Packaging is one of the major sources of waste paper and plastics. Packaging should be minimal. Its production should be environmentally clean and it should be made up of materials that can be reused or recycled repeatedly. Also green waste diversion and composting programs helps to reduce waste disposal. Leaves, grass clippings, and other organic waste materials are composted and used to enrich soil or as mulch or landfill cover.)
