Waste-minimization assessment for a manufacturer of heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning equipment. Environmental research brief.   EPA developed a four-tiered waste management hierarchy to guide waste management decision-making. During any incident, an important goal of waste management should be to reduce the amount of disposable waste and preserve valuable, limited landfill space. This goal can be met by reusing and recycling as much material and waste as possible. WasteWise encourages partners to conduct a waste assessment to establish a baseline and identify waste reduction opportunities. Set objectives and targets (ISO element ) WasteWise partners must set waste reduction goals. Establish a management program to achieve environmental objectives (ISO element ). The Trends Report presents an analysis of the trends seen in the management of PCs between and EPA and states use this information to identify potential waste minimization opportunities. See the following table for more information on the trends in PCs management from

• Options to be evaluated and a schedule for implementation based on a waste reduction assessment. Details of the plan should include: A list of all hazardous waste streams. An assessment of whether you need to set performance goals. If goal-setting isn’t practical at this point, list actions which will lead to establishing them in the future.   In addition, the EPA offers waste minimization tools at its Web site. Chemical Management Services—A business model in which the service provider is paid based on the quality and quantity of services provided, not on the volume of chemicals sold. Waste Minimization Assessment Centers (WMACs) were established at selected universities and procedures were adapted from the EPA Waste Minimization Opportunity Assessment Manual (EPA///, July ). The WMAC team at Colorado State University performed an assessment at a plant producing galvanized steel parts - approximat Every year, EPA awards more than $4 billion in funding for grants and other assistance agreements. From small non-profit organizations to large state governments, EPA works to help many visionary organizations achieve their environmental goals.

Environmental Protection Agency. Office of Research and Development.;]. EPA intends to publish a manual entitled "Waste Minimization Benefits Handbook" which will discuss in detail the cost/benefii analyses of WM options. About this manual This manual has been prepared for those responsible for planning, managing, and implementing waste minimization activities at the plant and corporate levels.

In general, the WMACs follow the procedures outlined in the EPA Waste Minimization Opportu- nity Assessment Manual (EPA///, July ). The WMAC staff locates the sources of hazardous waste in the plant and identifies the current disposal or treatment methods and their associated costs.

The USEPA has published a manual for conducting waste minimization assessments. This manual entitled Waste Minimization Opportunity Assessment Manual (EPA///) is available free from the Waste Minimization Branch, USEPA, 26 W.

Martin Luther King Dr., Cincinnati, OH The procedure recommended by the EPA is outlined in Figure 4. Records examinations, facility walk-throughs and waste sorts are three common approaches to conducting a waste assessment.

This assessment manual was originally developed by the Technology Clearinghouse ofthe Alternative Technology Division, now within Cal.EPA'sDepartmentofToxic Substances Control, to aid metal finishers in evaluating waste minimization opportunities.

The waste minimization assessment procedure presented here is a systematic framework that can be used by a facility's own employees to identify WM opportunities. As a structured program, it provides intermediate milestones and a step-by-step procedure to: Understand the facility's wastes and processes.

EPA has also developed a general manual for waste minimization in industry. The Waste Minimization Oppor-tunity Assessment Manual (USEPA ) tells how to conduct a waste minimization assessment and develop options for reducing hazardous waste generation at a facility. It explains the management strategies needed to.
