EPA’s Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery recently released a new Tribal Waste Management Training Resources webpage, which was created in partnership with federal and non-federal partners, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Indian Health Service, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and tribal organizations. These resources are designed to assist tribes with developing and implementing a waste management program.
The materials are organized into six categories:
- solid and hazardous waste regulations,
- planning tools,
- collection and disposal,
- circular economy,
- outreach and education and
- Alaska-specific information.
These free materials include resources from trainings, as well as education and outreach materials that are not a part of any formal training.
