Selecting the waste streams for assessment is the first step in chartering a waste reduction program. This step is sometimes done at a high organizational level. Program planners should gather the minimum amount of data required to make their selections and use the fastest method possible to prioritize them. Methods such as weighted-sum ranking and weighting are not necessary for streams produced by a single area.

Other tools for prioritizing a waste stream can be considered. For example, Pareto diagrams are a simple way to rank waste streams by volume. Smaller waste volumes can be given high priority if they are toxic or if regulatory imperatives are anticipated. A Pareto analysis of a typical
