Pollution Prevention

"Pollution Prevention (P2) is a strategy of material use, processing, and management that reduces or eliminates the creation of pollutants and waste at the source--prior to recycling, treatment or disposal."

The P2 Program offers an opportunity for cooperative partnership among the business community, municipalities, agencies of the state, the environmental community and DEQ to reduce the generation of waste through source reduction and sound environmental management.
