The guide provides an overview of non-agricultural pesticide use and presents options for minimizing waste through source reduction and recycling. Non-agricultural pesticide users are defined as lawn and garden; forestry, tree and shrub; sanitary; structural; nursery; and greenhouse pest control services. Options for waste reduction include the use of integrated pest management; biological controls; recycling of rinsates, the use of more efficient application equipment; as well as other options. The guide provides a set of work sheets which take the user step by step through an analysis of waste generating operations and the possibilities for minimizing each waste. The guide is intended for consultants who serve non-agricultural pesticide users and government agencies that regulate them.
