The Forum was organized to assess the applicability of analytical process to determine the source reduction potential of specific products containing heavy metals. Municipal solid waste source reduction as defined by the Conservation Foundation in its report Getting at the Source is 'the design, manufacture, purchase, or use of materials or products (including packages) to reduce the amount or toxicity before they enter the municipal solid waste stream'. For this Forum, the EPA decided to focus on the toxicity side of source reduction rather than volume or amount side and to invite all of the major players interested in the topic of source reduction to discuss source reduction options for particular products containing heavy metals.
