WasteWise 25th Anniversary Booklet
WasteWise was one of EPA’s longest-standing partnership programs. It involved thousands of organizations, ranging from corporations and businesses to educational institutions and governments. Partnerships drive successes and are the cornerstone of EPA’s work in sustainable materials management.
For 27 years, EPA’s WasteWise helped participants apply sustainable materials management practices to reduce municipal and select industrial wastes, saving resources and money. During the 27 years of the WasteWise program, participants kept close to 249 million tons — that’s 548,951,032,840 pounds — of materials from going to landfills or incineration.
This document highlights some of the accomplishments from the 25 years of WasteWise.
