Reducing Packaging and Container Waste

Use the proper quality, packaging material and size for the specific need. Design efficient packaging with minimal material that is strong and durable. Reuse packaging material such as crates and boxes whenever possible.

Request that your customer return material to you in the same packaging box or crate received from your company, when possible. Determine if you can return containers to the manufacturer such as empty totes or drums.

Verify compliance with transportation regulations and the hazardous waste and wastewater regulations related to washing or rinsing containers.
