What are the benefits of Zero Waste to Landfill?

ZWTL has many benefits including saving money through the reduction of waste; faster progress to cleaner production, more innovative steps; improved material flows because all materials should either return as reusable or recycled materials or would be suitable for use as compost or energy recovery; and ultimately supports sustainability by ensuring economic well being, environmental protection, and social well being.
