The report presents the results of a Pollution Prevention Opportunity Assessment (PPOA) conducted at the U.S. Postal Service's (USPS's) General Mail Facility (GMF) in Buffalo, New York. The PPOA was conducted of operations at the GMF (where mail is processed) and at the Vehicle Maintenance Facility (VMF) (where 1,200 postal vehicles are serviced and refinished). Waste generation at both facilities was documented and quantified. The reports identified potential source reduction and recycling initiatives as well as areas where further research is needed. The economic and technical feasibility of selected opportunities and techniques to eliminate, reduce, or recycle wastes were investigated. A limited implementation plan was developed. Potential barriers to implementing the identified options are described.
