  • In May 2019, NEWMOA and its partner organization the Northeast RecyclingCouncil (NERC) published a brochure and blog post to educate consumers on the climate impacts of consumption and steps individuals can take to limit these impacts. The brochure, "What Can We Do As Consumers About Climate Change?" is available for others to download and customize for their own use and branding.
  • June 2018 A&WMA Presentation, "Mitigating Climate Change Through Sustainable Materials Management"
  • In 2007, the Environmental Commissioners and Directors from the New England States challenged NEWMOA and the air and water interstates to identify regional activities to address climate change. As a result of this challenge, the NEWMOA Board of Directors developed a 2009 Climate-Waste Action Plan [PDF]. The Plan is a strategy for mitigating and adapting to climate change through improving waste prevention and recycling initiatives, increasing renewable energy on contaminated sites, implementing "greener" site remediation, and improving management and recycling of disaster debris.
