What is Precycling?
Precycling is a process where decisions are made before or at the
time of purchasing a product to reduce the amount of waste generated.

Buy products with little to no packaging
Buy products whose packaging is recyclable

Buy rechargeable batteries instead of single use batteries.
Don’t buy Styrofoam packing since it cannot be recycled.
Don’t buy disposable items (e.g. plates, cups, utensils, etc)
