The TRI 35th Anniversary
October 17, 2021, marks the 35th anniversary of the Toxics Release Inventory's creation under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA).
Through the TRI, EPA provides communities with information about how facilities are managing toxic chemicals in and near their neighborhoods, and provides facilities with opportunities to learn from each other’s best practices for reducing chemical waste and pollution.
