Waste Minimization as a Strategic Weapon provides guidance on how to design, implement, evaluate, and maintain a waste minimization program. It describes how waste reduction programs can be successfully coordinated into company procedures, while simultaneously improving that company's bottom line. It illustrates how to set goals and metrics for a waste minimization program, how to determine the progress of such a program, and how to calculate the true costs of environmental compliance. The underlying assumption is that waste is a manageable resource, and can therefore be turned into profit when managed appropriately. This comprehensive new book ties together the various systems, listed below, into a cohesive waste minimization program called Environmental Resources Management (ERM):
