An Integrated Waste Management Plan (IWMP) is the blueprint of a comprehensive waste management program. A successful IWMP can effectively lower total operating costs, increase efficiency, reduce the use of open dumps, and improve protection of human health and the environment. An IWMP is a practical document that provides the information and guidance needed to make critical waste management decisions. The plan also identifies alternatives for managing waste and the resources needed to implement a waste management program.
This documents explains the three steps to developing an IWMP:
- Step 1 - Collect Background Data
- Step 2 - Map out the Tribal IWMP Framework
- Step 3 - Write and Implement the Tribal IWMP
