Section 2 - General Waste Reduction Practices

2.3 GOOD OPERATING PRACTICES

Good operating practices, a subset of pollution prevention methods, are organizational and procedural activities that reduce the generation of waste. Generally, these are not equipment oriented methods of waste reduction, although the implementation of some good operating practices can result in significant capital expenditures when implemented plant-wide. Many of the good operating practices identified will provide product quality improvements and operating cost reductions in addition to reducing waste generation. Also, they will generally improve the working environment of a shop, including health and safety aspects.
