The final report examines the needs (technical, educational, and policy) of municipal solid waste managers in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Four state profiles of solid waste management (and one profile for Indian tribes) indicate the variety of needs across the region. Washington and Oregon needs are concentrated in finding markets for recyclable materials, while Idaho and Alaska need more basic technical assistance in siting and building landfills, handling wastes in remote rural villages, and in beginning to promote recycling within the states. The report presents recommendations to the EPA Region 10 office on ways in which it can assist the states. Emphasis is on market development, basic technical assistance, interstate issues, education and outreach, and research needs. The report is based on over a hundred interviews with states regulators, legislators, local waste managers, governmental and tribal associations, non-profit groups, and waste/recycling industries.
