PDC day 7: Principle 6

Waste not want not

PDC day 7 - principle 6

Waste is an opportunity

Look to the waste stream to see where your most available resources are.

We must learn to see the value in waste and even anticipate the residues in advance and develop a plan of how you are going to harvest that potential.
