It's not to late to register your site!!

On May 1, 2002, from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (Eastern time), the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency will sponsor a satellite forum entitled
"Communities: Setting Trends in Waste Prevention and Recycling".  This
program will assist solid waste managers in establishing effective waste
reduction programs.

Panelists include: Charlie Reighart, Baltimore County, MD Department of
Public Works which earned the 2001 Bronze Award for Integrated Solid
Waste Systems for the County's unique residential refuse/recycling
management system;  John Reindl, Dane County, WI Department of Public

directories on solid waste management; Tom Padia, Alameda County, CA
Waste Authority,and Recycling Board and  Laura Weber from the St. Regis
Mohawk Tribe who will discuss rural community recycling challenges. The
forum panel will share lessons learned about their own government
programs for waste prevention, and recycling. In addition to the
panelists' presentations, video clips will highlight other successful
programs and viewers can call in and ask questions.

EPA and its partners encourage you to participate in any way you can.

The satellite forum will be accessible to downlink at locations
nationwide. You may organize a viewing opportunity for a few of your
colleagues, students, and local organizations, or you may wish to host a
larger event with speakers or panelists from your community or region.
Either way, we hope that this forum will offer you an opportunity to
gain new insights about solid waste reduction.
