Don’t litter!

Unfortunately, littering has become a somewhat common practice in Jordan. Many of the formerly beautiful areas of the country are spoiled by litter that is strewn everywhere. There have been clean-up initiatives country-wide, but to keep Jordan clean, we all need to take responsibility and stop littering…

Reduce

Reducing, reusing, and recycling are a great way to manage your own waste responsibly. But how do you do it?

Reduce

Reducing means buying less, consuming less, and wasting less. When we reduce our consumption, we reduce our waste!

Reuse

Maybe you tend to hold on to things that are broken or that you don’t have a use for, just in case you find a use for them. Or perhaps you bargain hunt for used furniture or clothing –You are finding a new purpose or bringing new life to an item that would otherwise end up in the landfill. This is re-using-congratulations!

You can reuse items on your own, or even sell or donate so that others can use them.

Recycle

When we recycle something, it is transformed into a raw material that can be shaped into a new item. This is a more intensive process than re-using, but is still far better than sending something to the landfill!

To recycle, we need to learn what products can be recycled. Currently in Jordan, recycling services are provided by a handful of different actors in different locations throughout the country. You can find service providers near you using our handy map
