The Tribal Solid Waste Education and Assistance Program is focused on providing training and assistance in the field of solid waste for tribal nations and communities. In 2013, ITEP entered into a partnership with the US EPA’s American Indian Environmental Office (AIEO) and the United South and Eastern Tribes (USET) to develop training courses and direct technical assistance activities to assist tribes in creating and implementing solid waste codes and ordinances. The first of these courses will take place May 2014 in Nashville, Tennessee. Please click on the training link below to access the course description and application. We will offer this course a second time, later in the summer of 2014. This second course is tentatively scheduled to take palce in Seattle, Washington. Each course will feature both tribal professionals and legal experts who will walk attendees through the process of crafting solid waste codes, as well as getting them implemented. Additionally, those individuals selected to take part in the training courses will have access to legal expert advice as they create their codes.
