What is WasteWise?

WasteWise is a free, voluntary EPA partnership program assisting and recognizing businesses, governments and organizations that reduce or eliminate costly municipal solid waste and select industrial wastes, benefiting both the environment and their bottom line.

WasteWise is flexible. Partners design their own waste reduction programs tailored to their needs.

Who can join WasteWise?

Businesses, local governments, and nonprofit organizations of all sizes and from all industry sectors can join WasteWise. WasteWise partners range from small local governments and nonprofit organizations to large, multinational corporations. Learn about WasteWise success stories
