WasteWise works with partners to reduce municipal solid waste and select industrial wastes. WasteWise promotes cost savings and efficiency through waste prevention, recycling, and buying/manufacturing recycled content products. Any organization that can measure and report wastes can join as a partner. The WasteWise Endorser Program engages State and local government agencies, trade associations, nonprofit organizations, and businesses to help educate their constituents about the benefits of reducing solid waste. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides partners with promotional, educational, or technical information.
