What is a Source Reduction Plan?
Once you have good baseline data from a clean-up site, you can use this data to create an understanding of what are the most common items being found and where they might be coming from. This enables individuals and communities to engage with all likely stakeholders and partners to create a strategy that would stop those items collected from ever entering the environment in the first place. This is a Source Reduction Plan (SRP).
We have created a Source Reduction Plan form that provides a framework for you to work through when creating this plan, and below are links to Source Reduction Plans that other communities have implemented so you can find examples of what worked, what didn't and suggestions on implementing your plan.
