In 1994, United States residents generated more than 209 million tons of municipal solid waste. If current trends continue, by 2010, we will have an additional 70 million tons to manage each year.

Approximately one-third of our waste is generated by businesses, such as offices, restaurants, and retail stores. The amount of office waste can be lowered through "source reduction," that is, by using less and thereby reducing the amount of material thrown out every day. The following reduction tips, provided by INFORM, are designed to reduce the amount of office waste that otherwise would have to be recycled, burned, or placed in a landfill.
