To promote waste minimization activities in accordance with the national policy objectives established under the 1984 Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA), the Hazardous Waste Engineering Research Laboratory (HWERL) of the USEPA Office of Research and Development has undertaken a project to develop and test a waste minimization (WM) audit procedure. As part of the project, a total of 6 WM audits were carried out in four separate facilities. The report presents the results of the on-site WM audits performed at two electroplating facilities that generate cyanide-bearing wastes. The report also describes the WM audit procedure as it has developed from the initial (pre-project) sequence of steps, to the modified (post-project) sequence that reflects the experience gained during this HWERL project.
