Zero Waste America (ZWA) is a Internet-based environmental
research organization specializing in the field of Zero Waste. We provide
(through our website, primarily), information on associated legislative, legal,
technical, environmental, health, and consumer issues.
We also specialize in information on U.S. waste disposal issues, particularly
the lack a federal 'waste management' plan, the use of 'disposal bans' to
legally stop waste disposal and imports, the long-proposed federal Interstate
Waste legislation, waste data collection methodology, and applicable federal
case law. ZWA is an authority on the regulatory enforcement of the State Plan
(waste management) provisions of The Solid Waste Disposal Act (otherwise known
as The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act - RCRA).
ZWA is unconventional. We accept no money or advertising. ZWA has no membership,
regular meetings, or conventional office holding. ZWA is not associated with any
business or government.
