Community Solid Waste Management Resource Toolkit

03 November 2017
The ACAP workshop Sharing Approaches on Community Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Within Arctic Indigenous Communities was held in Nome, Alaska, September 20- 22, 2016.

One outcome from the workshop was to develop a clearinghouse for information on waste management as a next step for further disseminating tools and resources in the Arctic region. Encouraging community connections and greater information sharing on waste management issues plays a potentially vital role in helping to protect and preserve the environment. Clean water and clean air Arctic communities are critical components to a healthy life, especially because living off the land is vital to survival.
