Hazardous Waste Subcommittee
The Hazardous Waste Subcommittee is comprised of seven task forces which discuss policy and technical aspects of the RCRA hazardous waste program, research specific program elements of interest to States, develop positions or recommendations, and provide expert comment on issues arising from the implementation of the RCRA program at the State level. Specific work activities focus on the areas of performance systems, corrective action, enforcement/compliance assurance, information management, program operations, recycling, and training.
Materials Management Subcommittee
The mission of the Materials Management Subcommittee is to enhance and promote the development of effective State and Territorial materials management programs that incorporate product stewardship, source reduction, beneficial use, recycling, conversion technology and land disposal.
Program and Information Exchange Subcommittee
The mission of the Program and Information Exchange Subcommittee is to identify and coordinate national waste program policy issues and enhance information exchange to facilitate effective State Programs. The Greener Cleanups Workgroup, formerly of the Sustainability Subcommittee, is now part of the Program and Information Exchange Subcommittee, which addresses cross-programmatic issues such as the greener cleanups focus that is relevant to Superfund, Brownfields, RCRA, Federal Facilities, and Tanks.
State Tank Programs are in place which ensure sharing of information among the States, coordination with federal efforts, and integration with other waste management programs, and which have identified and addressed overlapping program elements.
