MANCHESTER, NH – Sign up today for the Oct. 28 Manchester Pollution Prevention Workshop, 8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m., at the city’s Public Health Department, 1528 Elm St., in Manchester.

While the use of hazardous materials is a common and routine part of society, we rarely consider the legitimate hazards and costs associated with the use of these flammable, reactive, toxic and corrosive materials on a daily basis –as fuels, cleaners, and as ingredients in manufacturing.

In many cases, there are basic procedural or operational changes that can be made at minimal or no cost that can allow you to reduce your use of these materials and save money.   These practices have been described as pollution prevention, sustainability, or simply improved resource management.  Unfortunately, many of these strategies are not common knowledge or practice.Screen shot 2014-10-10 at 8.12.09 AM

The City of Manchester and the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services have teamed up to offer the business community a chance to learn more about how to identify opportunities to improve resource management as a means to promote pollution prevention and cut operating costs by sponsoring a free half-day educational seminar.

During this presentation, industry representatives and technical experts will review and discuss proven methods that have been repeatedly used to successfully reduce chemical usage, and decrease water and energy consumption.
