EPA Hosts Online Town Hall Meeting

February 22, 2010

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is hosting a live online town hall meeting on February 23, 2010, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST. Mathy Stanislaus, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, along with other EPA officials, will answer questions on how to reduce your carbon footprint. EPA will also engage viewers in the ongoing environmental justice discussion of the 2008 Definition of Solid Waste rule.

EPA is interested in hearing what citizens are doing to fight climate change and how the agency can help encourage this effort.

In January, EPA began requesting public input on a draft plan for assessing the potential impacts of hazardous waste recycling rule on low-income, minority and tribal populations. EPA will hold a series of public roundtables on this topic in January and February. The online town hall meeting offers another opportunity for the public to share their thoughts on the draft plan.
