Learn about key issues, successful projects and best management practices to create stellar waste management programs.  Conference calls, in conjunction with power point presentations, allow you to hear from experts around the country on what works, what doesn't and how to make your program more successful.  The format for the calls include a formal presentation followed by a question and answer session and discussion time.  The goal of the Resource Conservation Challenge Web Academy is to give you information and tools to decrease waste, increase reuse, recycling and pollution prevention and conserve energy and materials.
