How to manage our waste

The waste ladder is an EU directive that is adopted in the Swedish Environmental Code and governs how the waste is to be handled. Consumption is increasing, which means that more and more waste is produced. Therefore, recycling is not enough, we have to step up the waste ladder, which means reusing and minimizing the amount of waste. This is what the steps in the waste ladder look like: 1. Minimize: Produce goods in a resource-efficient way and by consuming as few goods as possible. 2. Reuse: Reuse your items by leaving them second hand, turning them into something else or selling them. 3. Recycle: If recycling is not possible, the material in the waste should be recycled. 4. Extract energy: If the material cannot be recycled, it must be incinerated in a power plant to convert the energy. 5. Landfill: Dispose of waste in a landfill. It's the worst option and the last resort.
