Pollution Prevention Planning
The purpose of Pollution Prevention Planning is to identify opportunities to reduce or eliminate the generation of hazardous waste and the use of toxic chemicals at the source rather than treating or controlling these materials after they have been created or used. Vermont's Pollution Prevention Planning law requires businesses that exceed certain thresholds to complete pollution prevention plans. The Pollution Prevention Program has prepared a series of worksheets with instructions and a guidance document to assist businesses that are subject to the law with the development of a plan.
