The Waste Minimization Assessment Centers (WMACs) team at Colorado State University performed an assessment at a plant that manufactures screwdrivers-over 30 million/yr. Plastic handles are fabricated from virgin and recycled plastic beads. The team's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated that the waste stream generated in the greatest quantity is waste plastic and that significant cost savings could be realized by pelletizing the plastic scrap before its sale to a recycler.
