Waste prevention

Maximising the use of resources while minimising the amount of waste

The most efficient form of waste management is simply to reduce the amount of waste we produce. Taking the end-of-life phase of a product into account during the design phase is one approach to waste prevention. By considering  the choice of materials, how a product is assembled, and equally important disassembled,  designers can improve the recyclability of products and drastically reduce the amount of waste we produce. In Denmark, the Advisory Board for Circular Economy highlighted ‘more circularity’ in design and production of goods as a measure to maximise the use of resources and minimise the amount of waste.
