dejá vu Open dumps were supposed to be closed in 1993 and the deadline was extended 5 years. I think it’s time to find out why they are allowed to still exist. Of course, just 20 awards per year doesn’t help.
Tribal Solid Waste Management
This U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requests proposals for the Tribal Solid Waste Management Assistance Project. This project assists tribes to close or cleanup open dumps, develop alternative disposal options, and establish integrated solid waste management programs. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
1) Characterization/assessment of open dumps, and 2) The development and implementation of alternative solid waste management activities/facilities. $2 million expected to be available up to 20 awards anticipated.
