Do You Have Any Old, Unused or Excessive
Materials (equipment, paint cleaning supplies, spray cans, etc.)
Here is what you need to do...
•Develop a facility-specific waste reduction plan that covers both hazardous and non-hazardous waste
-hazardous wastes are discarded materials regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency because of public health and safety concerns.
-nonhazardous wastes are discarded materials not regulated by the EPA
•Control material inventory by:
-ordering only the amount of material needed to perform the activity
-storing materials in neat, orderly, segregated areas
•Cover outdoor storage areas to avoid material contact with the elements
Old, unused or excessive products stored on-site can
present an environmental liability for the facility.
For additional information, contact your immediate supervisor or visit the environmental web page (blue.usps.gov/environmental).
