Ongoing Projects

Hazardous Waste Manifest Project - Helps state programs share information on the collection, storage, and retrieval of manifests and facilitates member involvement in the development of the new national electronic manifest system that the US EPA is developing.
Pharmaceutical Waste Project - Provides a forum for sharing monitoring data related to pharmaceuticals in the environment; interfacing with EPA on regulatory approaches to pharmaceutical waste management; sharing information on enforcement of laws and regulations; keeping informed about regulatory approaches being developed in other jurisdictions; and working collaboratively to develop new regulatory approaches and models.
RCRA Inspector Training - Provides monthly conference calls and annual workshops for hazardous waste inspectors.

Past Projects

Auto Body Initiative - Provided support to the Small Business Environmental Assistance Programs in US EPA Region 5 to help them implement an Environmental Results Program (ERP) for auto body refinishing shops.
The Common Measures for Environmental Performance - Evaluated the performance of targeted business sectors using common measures and statistical approaches, and used the results to identify particularly effective strategies that states employ to promote good environmental performance on the part of the regulated community.
