It shall be the policy of the Department to search for and whenever possible to use materials and supplies which are nonhazardous and nontoxic. The primary goal of this policy is to prevent pollution at its source, and reduce waste and emissions, minimizing the adverse impact on the air, water, and land of Minnesota.
