Cost Savings and Waste Reduction through Pollution Prevention and Recycling

By re-engineering processes, sharing resources, recycling, and working smart BNL is saving millions of dollars in avoided disposal costs, reducing the risk of pollution, eliminating compliance concerns, and creating a safer work place. The PDFs below track the number of pounds of waste reduced, reused, or recycled and the cost savings associated with pollution prevention and recycling projects during the calendar year. Cost savings are calculated based on actual costs of disposing of waste through the Waste Management Division. For further information or details, contact the Peter Pohlot, Pollution Prevention Coordinator, Ext. 5660. Some projects continue to generate savings for years.
