The management of the “waste” under the 3Rs Principle is the waste management that places the importance to reducing the waste generations to the minimum, first, by focusing on the use of raw materials or production resources efficiently. Next, after wastes are generated, efforts must be exerted to find the way to recycle or reuse them as much as possible by making consideration on the potential utilization of each type of the wastes and related laws in order to minimize quantity of the waste residues remained to be treated and disposed of by choosing to use the waste disposal methods as a last resort.
