The EPA's progress over the last eighteen years in improving environmental quality through its media-specific pollution control programs has been substantial. However, EPA realizes that further improvements can be realized by pursuing pollution prevention strategies through a multi-media waste minimization approach. Many public and private organizations in the United States support waste minimization as an approach to reducing waste generation. The EPA encourages waste generators to carry out assessments in their facilities to identify opportunities for waste minimization. The paper describes the six elements of a waste minimization program as recommended by the EPA.
