The mission of the Compliance Assistance, Environmental Stewardship, and Cooperative Enforcement Task Force (CAESCE) is to help address and meet the Border 2020 Goal 5: Enhance Compliance Assurance and Environmental Stewardship. The CAESCE is established primarily to discuss and solve problems associated with cross-border movement of waste between Texas and Mexico. Early initiatives on the CAESCE Task Force addressed training maquiladora environmental managers on proper documentation required for shipping waste materials to the US for final disposition. Current initiatives expand to development of community gardens and extensive community clean-up events collecting tens of thousands of scrap tires and well over a million tons of solid waste.
