Pollution Prevention

PollutionPrev_photo1.pngPollution Prevention is reducing or eliminating waste at the source by modifying production processes, promoting the use of non-toxic or less-toxic substances, implementing conservation techniques, and re-using materials rather than putting them into the waste stream.

Clean Water, Healthy Community.
San Mateo Countywide Water Pollution Prevention Program (SMCWPPP) partners with residents and businesses to prevent pollution of our local water bodies; such as creeks, the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Visit http://www.flowstobay.org for more information.
