Waste manifests itself before, during, and after production processes due to the inefficient use of resources. Waste affects all industries regardless of size and whether they are manufacturing products or offering services. The basic principle of pollution prevention is that there is “no such thing as waste, only resources in the wrong place.” Both businesses and individuals can save money and reduce environmental impacts by designing processes that remove waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems through best management practices.
