English term or phrase:secondary use streams
In a paragraph about waste management:
"We need to not only identify the secondary uses, but also need to develop secondary use streams for these materials to flow through the facility ending up where they are actually used as intended."
handling and routing facilities for secondary use materials
Explanation: Obviously, by expanding the term to an explanation, I have produced a phrase that you would not want to repeat throughout a document. So, "secondary use streams" has the virtue of succinctness and by starting with an explanation with the original term in brackets after, you can subsequently use that source term.
