"Greening" Government Procurement
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and Executive Order

materials to the maximum extent possible on certain items. U.S. EPA, as
the lead agency in this effort, provides information to assist in accomplishing
this requirement. To learn more about how to comply with these requirements
