M3c: Use recycled and recyclable materials

Using materials with a high recycled-content eliminates the need to extract and process virgin materials. Using materials that are easily recyclable helps keep future waste out of landfills and provides source material for future recycled products.

  • Use high recycled-content products whenever possible
  • Use materials that will be easily recycled at the end of their useful life
  • Avoid composite materials and assemblies that are difficult to separate for recycling at the end of their useful life
