Annual Meeting

Thank you to everyone who took the time and made the effort to attend the ASTSWMO Annual Meeting. We had a record turnout this year of State, Territorial, and Local representatives from various environmental organizations and we greatly appreciate it. At this meeting the attendees donated $2,200 for hurricane relief for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. We also thank those who took part in the elections and the awards ceremony. Videos and presentations from the sessions will be available soon so stay tuned. We look forward to seeing you all again at the mid-year meeting and next year's annual meeting as well.

EPA Strategic Plan Comments

The Association of State and Territorial Solid Waste Management Officials (ASTSWMO) Board of Directors appreciates the opportunity to provide the enclosed comments on the Draft FY 2018-2022 EPA Strategic Plan. The ASTSWMO Board of Directors is encouraged with EPA’s plan to “launch a new era of State, tribal, local and international partnerships.” During these uncertain budgetary times, we agree that we must leverage partnerships to ensure we are collectively addressing the needs of our programs. States know their programs and can share ideas on how to streamline and add flexibility.
