U.S. EPA's Office of Research and Development is preparing a guide to be published later this year for non-agricultural pesticide applicators which will provide specific information about waste minimization for pesticide users in industries such as commercial lawn care, structural pest control, greenhouse operations, and forestry. The paper summarizes the major recommendations to be included in the upcoming manual for waste source reduction and recycling within the operational activities of subject industry. Examples include implementation of an integrated pest management program, inventory control and storage, product substitution, containers and packaging changes, and improved mixing and application technology. The guide is one in a series of industry-specific pollution prevention guides that EPA is publishing in cooperation with the California Department of Health Services. The first guide in the series, published in 1990, described waste reduction opportunities in the pesticide formulating industry.
