 (4)  Develop a cost allocation system wherever pratical and feasible to
 allocate the true costs of waste management to the activities
 responsible for generating the waste in the first place.  Departments and
 managers should be charged "full-loaded" pollution control and waste man-
 agement costs. Labor costs, liability, regulatory compliance, disposal, and
 oversight costs should all be included.

 (5)  Encourage technology transfer. Consult technical manuals or EPA's
 clearinghouse (see below) for specific types of industry, processes, or wastes,
 or to review case studies that have been developed.  Many successful
  techniques have been documented that may be applicable to your facility.
 Information can be obtained from federal and state agencies, universities,
 trade associations, and other firms.

 and identify potential areas for improvement Has pollution prevention
 become a significant part of the way you do business?
