In many areas, government officials are trying to minimize the creation of waste rather than just trying to find ways of getting rid of it. With this in mind — and because eliminating waste makes good business sense — EASA developed the Waste Minimization Program. This booklet outlines the reasons to minimize waste and the steps you can take to implement a waste minimization program, including making a waste minimization assessment of your workplace.

Subjects covered in the 20-page booklet include:

  • Waste minimization incentives
  • Elements of a successful waste minimization program
  • Waste minimization assessment
  • Legal requirements of waste minimization
  • Typical wastes associated with the repair of electric motors
  • Waste minimization source reduction compliance checklist
