Rethinking America's Approach to Hazardous Waste

Many people don’t realize that hazardous waste from households and small businesses goes unregulated by local, regional, and national agencies. NAHMMA brings together product manufacturers, government regulators, and the people on the front lines of waste management programs to promote product stewardship, build consensus, and keep pollutants out of our municipal waste streams.
