Affirmative procurement/green purchasing -Reply



Word from our Office of the Federal Environmental Executive is:

"The best resources are the "Buy Recycled Training Manual," which is
available from Richard Keller of Maryland Environmental Service,
410-974-7254, and the web site for the King County, Washington
buy-recycled program, <www.metrokc.gov/oppis/recyclea.html>.  You
should also refer the inquiry to the National Recycling Coalition's Buy
Recycled Business Alliance, 703-683-9025, or
<http://www.nrc-recycle.org/>."

Hi, P2 tech members:

Is anyone aware of a manual or "cookbook" for setting up an affirmative
procurement/purchasing program for materials with high recycled content? Has
anyone set up a successful program like this and has a lessons learned report
they would share?

Thanks.
