Environment, Energy and Transportation (EET) program staff have information covering a wide range of waste topics, including solid waste and radioactive waste management.
Solid waste topics include electronic waste, state bottle bill programs, and state waste tire programs. The burgeoning accumulation of solid waste of all types has focused state attention on the three R's of waste management: reduction in the source of waste, reuse of products and materials, and recycling. Other solid waste topics covered by EET staff include composting, litter and landfills.
Radioactive waste management topics include information on used fuel from nuclear power plants, the cleanup of our nation’s cold war weapons and research facilities, and activities of NCSL’s Nuclear Legislative Workgroup.
