There’s no “away” when we throw garbage into a can or litter basket. Trash goes into landfills, where it decomposes – sending methane, carbon dioxide and toxins into our air, soil and water. 0X30 minimizes this: By contributing zero waste to landfills by 2030, New Yorkers will be protecting our environment more than ever before.
The best way to keep garbage from landfills is by limiting the materials you use. Reduce use when you can – and reuse and recycle the rest. For example, opt out from receiving junk mail, and donate or sell items you no longer need.
