Title:
McNaughton & Gunn, Inc. Saline, Michigan

Abstract:
McNaughton & Gunn, a book printer located in Saline, Michigan, processes over two million pounds of paper each month into books. The process generates paper, film scraps, aluminum printing plates, ink, and office paper waste. In an effort to reduce adverse impacts to the environment and to reduce disposal costs, the company strives to prevent or minimize the amount of waste being generated (source reduction). Source reduction strategies such as raw material input substitution, working with suppliers to reduce input packaging, and office management changes are key components in McNaughton & Gunn's approach to eliminating hazardous and solid waste.
