Till a decade back, only the metropolitan cities were facing the problem of waste management and proper garbage disposal. But things have changed a lot now and even the smaller cities are finding it tough these days to handle the garbage generated by the ever-rising population. The solution that experts recommend the most involves four Rs and when these things are implemented strategically, waste disposal becomes smooth along with total management.

Here in this article, we have covered the details of this four Rs formula and what is the role of these Rs in total waste management.

4rs Of Waste Management

Experts say that waste management is an issue that has to handled on a daily basis and for this handling, the biggest tool is the four Rs that we are covering here. The 4R Mantra everyone owes to our eco-system! — Reduce, Reuse, Repair, and Recycle!


According to waste disposal Adelaide agencies, it would be really tough for anyone to manage the huge amounts of garbage. Therefore, the first "R" should be implemented here that stands for REDUCE and this means attempting to reduce the garbage as much as possible. This way, we will not just reduce the garbage, but also save on the resources used in rubbish removal, waste management as well as waste disposal. This "reduce" can be implemented by prolonging the use of the products that you think should be dumped in the dustbin. Similarly, this also involves minimizing the usage of things that come with the tag of "use and throw". A very good example here is of refurbishing equipments to bring back to their best shape and condition and use them for an extended period of time. In terms of REDUCE, the medical industry has worked really impressively by proper usage, regular preventive maintenance and proper calibration of medical equipments.


Reuse will automatically help you in efforts related to "reduce" and here, "reuse" means, using products repeatedly as much as possible and once, they are no more of use, they can be sent for recycling. For example – if a hospital wants a better version of some equipment, they can sell the existing one rather than dumping it in the skip bin. This way, not just they will reduce the amount of garbage, but at the same time, help someone by donating or even, selling the machine.


Poor quality parts or equipments can annoy you and force you to dump it and purchase a new one. But you can promote both "reuse" and "reduce" with the help of the third R that stands for "repair". Particularly in the medical industry and medical centres, so many equipments are there that can be repaired and then, reused to reduce the amount of garbage that we generate from there.


In case, the product is totally beyond reuse and repair, in that case, you will have to go with the fourth "R" that stands for "recycle" and in this concept, so many things are there that you can recycle. According to experts, all metals, plastic items, ferrous metals, etc. can be recycled and perfectly reused in the form of new materials and products.
