In 1996, WasteWise began a study of solid waste reduction practices within the electric utility industry, through a combination of site visits, interviews, and literature reviews. This report highlights some of the most effective and innovative solid waste reduction activities implemented by the industry. While EPA considers coal ash to be an industrial waste as opposed to municipal solid waste, this report also documents ways utility partners are reducing coal ash. EPA included this waste stream in the report because partners have undertaken innovative waste reduction efforts in this area and because coal ash constitutes such a large portion of the utility waste stream.
