WasteWise: Waste Management and Environmental Conservation

EPA provides free services to help communities and companies reduce waste and improve environmental conservation.

WasteWise is a free, voluntary, EPA program through which organizations eliminate costly municipal solid waste and select industrial wastes, benefiting their bottom line and the environment. WasteWise is a flexible program that allows partners to design their own waste reduction programs tailored to their needs.

All organizations within the United States may join the program.

Waste Reduction

Waste reduction makes good business sense because it can save your organization money through reduced purchasing and waste disposal costs.

WasteWise provides free technical assistance to help you develop, implement, and measure your waste reduction activities. WasteWise offers publicity to organizations that are successful in reducing waste through EPA publications, case studies, and national and regional events. These events also provide networking opportunities for organizations to share waste reduction ideas and success stories.

There is no fee for membership in WasteWise. EPA designed WasteWise to be a free, voluntary, flexible program.

WasteWise has developed several targeted initiatives aimed at providing better service to our partners. Focusing on specific materials or industry sectors, the targeted initiatives will provide a fresh look at waste reduction.

  • The WasteWise College and University Campaign is aimed at increasing the resource conservation efforts on college and university campuses across the United States.
  • The WasteWise States Campaign seeks to build partnerships between WasteWise's waste reduction outreach efforts and efforts of state environmental agencies.
  • The WasteWise Challenge program helps partners expand existing waste reduction programs and adopt new strategies proven most successful by other partners. Each Challenge focuses on a specific material or product type. Challenge topics include buildings, electronics, and transport packaging.
  • The Resource Conservation Challenge (RCC) focuses on key WasteWise waste streams including organic materials, paper, primary packaging/containers, secondary products, and electronics.
