TRI P2 Reporting Tip Sheet

This tipsheet is intended to:

1.  Encourage facilities to describe their pollution prevention activities in the optional Section 8.11 of the TRI Form R;

2.  Offer guidance on the topics that would be most useful for facilities to cover in Section 8.11; and

3. Facilitate the sharing of information within and across organizations. The “notes” space on the front of this sheet can be used for this purpose, either in handout or writeable pdf format.
