WasteWise is a voluntary, EPA program that allows organizations to put into practice waste reduction systems. We are one of the approximately 1,900 partners of WasteWise, who consist of large corporations, small and medium-sized businesses, schools, colleges, universities, hospitals, state and local governments, tribes, and other institutions. Through waste reduction methods, we work towards waste prevention, recycling, and buying and manufacturing recycled content products.
