This report describes the findings of the Pollution Prevention Opportunity Assessment of the United States Postal Service, Northern Virginia Facilities: Engineering Research and Development (ERD), Processing and Distribution Center (PDC) and Vehicle Maintenance Facility (VMF) located in Merrified, Virginia. The mission of each of the functional areas of the ERD, PDC, and VMF, including operations performed, processes and materials employed and the wastes and emissions generated, are described.
