EPA held a series of roundtable discussions on its Draft Environmental Justice Methodology for the Definition of Solid Waste rule. These meetings were intended to be an opportunity for a public dialogue on how best to conduct the Environmental Justice Analysis. Stakeholders were invited to provide feedback on any aspect of the methodology.

Draft Environmental Justice Methodology for the Definition of Solid Waste Rule (PDF) (16 pp, 105 K) Provides background and overview of the draft Environmental Justice Methodology and includes questions for stakeholder discussion. This is the basic presentation that was used at the three roundtable meetings.
