Pollution Prevention Program Mission Statement

The mission of the Pollution Prevention Program at the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality is to assist the citizens of Oklahoma (business/industry, local government and the public) with pollution prevention; industrial waste, wastewater and emissions reduction; and proper waste management. This includes resource conservation and minimizing the transfer of pollutants from one media to another. This mission is accomplished by providing:

General outreach to business and industry through seminars, training workshops, and information transfer.

Individualized telephone and on-site technical assistance which includes analysis and interpretation of information needed to reduce waste, improve waste management, and comply with environmental regulations.

A clearinghouse of resource materials where information on industrial waste, pollution prevention and waste management is assembled, cataloged, and distributed.
