GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Remediation Best Management Practices: Materials and Waste Management

Title:
Green Remediation Best Management Practices: Materials and Waste Management

Abstract:
The process of cleaning up a contaminated site often involves purchasing and consuming large volumes of manufactured items as well as raw or processed resources. Site cleanup can also generate significant volumes of waste that could be recycled or salvaged for reuse rather than disposed of at landfills. To help cleanup decision-makers reduce environmental footprints associated with materials and waste, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently issued a new "green remediation BMP" fact sheet on materials and waste management. The best management practices (BMPs) involve various approaches to purchasing greener products and expanding capability for material reuse or recycling rather than disposal.
