Don't know where to start your company's waste-reduction program? The Washington State Department of Ecology has two free booklets, printed on recycled paper, that can point you in the right direction:

* Success Through Waste Reduction gives case histories of eight small to midsize companies' programs for a variety of waste and recycling needs.

* Waste Reduction in Your Business features a due-diligence form to help you analyze what your company can do.

Together, the booklets can make what might have been a formidable project a breeze. Call the department's Business Assistance Unit at (206) 438-7585, or in Washington call (800) RECYCLE.
