Mission Statement

The North America Hazardous Materials Management Association (NAHMMA) is a non-profit, membership-based association of individuals, businesses, government officials, academia, and non-profit organizations dedicated to pollution prevention and reducing the hazardous components entering municipal waste streams from households, small businesses and other entities.

We promote and encourage:

  • Product reformulation

  • Development and use of less or non-hazardous products, constituents, processes, and methods

  • Collection of products and materials that contain hazardous components for reuse, recycling or hazardous waste management.

We do this by:

  • Fostering education, communication and informational exchanges

  • Encouraging development of sound policies and cost effective strategies

  • Recognizing exemplary people, programs, policies and practices

  • Providing professional development opportunities.
