Race can determine the level of hazardous waste exposure. To confront the disparities that exist in our communities, the Hazardous Waste Management Program is committed to leading with racial equity. This allows us to address the root causes of inequities and make greater impacts.
In 2018, we adopted a Racial Equity Strategic Plan. This five-year plan sets a path to improve our policies, practices, and service delivery. In addition, we completed a companion Racial Equity Implementation Plan to incorporate this work into our operations and services. To assure our team continues their education, they receive trainings targeted at increasing knowledge and capacity to advance racial equity.
