This report, describes the findings of the Pollution Prevention Opportunity Assessment of the United States Postal Inspection Service, Forensic and Technical Services Division's National Forensic Laboratory in Dulles, Virginia. The mission of each of the functional areas of the Forensic Laboratory, including operations performed, processes and materials employed and the waste and emissions generated, is described. The Assessment Team then makes recommendations concerning the procurement of hazardous materials; management of hazardous materials; purchase of chemicals on USEPA's 33/50 list; regeneration of carbon filters, improvement of source separation and recycling of paper and paper products, metals, and plastics; management of unwanted equipment; and other recommendations that can lead to the elimination, reduction, or improved management of the facility's solid and hazardous waste steams and emissions to air and water.
