Abstract In this report, the findings of the Pollution Prevention Opportunity Assessment of the United States Postal Service, Materials Distribution Center, Central Repair Facility, and Label Printing Center located in Topeka, Kansas are described. The report describes the mission of each of the functional areas of the MDC including operations performed, processes and materials employed and the wastes and emissions generated.
