What does Zero Landfill mean?

Zero landfill is the shortened version of “zero waste to landfill”, which means exactly what it sounds like - sending nothing to the landfill.

It supports the redesign of resource life cycles, so we maintain the maximum value of those resources and eliminate the need to dispose resources.
