Each of the five decision trees seeks to prioritise elimination of waste first and foremost, but also provides a logical path through the waste hierarchy, highlighting some key pros and cons of each step. Where steps to eliminate or reduce waste are not possible, the minimum desired outcome is to prevent SUPPs from becoming litter. These practical recommendations, which are geared to individual businesses and local policymakers, incorporates life cycle thinking and is designed to inspire action.
