The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funded a project with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Energy (NJDEPE) to assist in conducting waste minimization assessments at thirty small- to medium-sized businesses in the state of New Jersey. One of the sites selected was a facility that manufactures machinery used for commercial dry cleaning operations. A site visit was made in 1990 during which several opportunities for waste minimization were identified. Options identified for waste reduction included improvement of spray painting operations and recycling opportunities for wood scrap. In addition there is an option mentioned to encourage the change of refrigerant to a non-CFC chemical. Implementation of the identified-waste minimization opportunities was not part of the program. Percent waste reduction, net annual savings, implementation costs and payback periods were estimated.
