Task Force on the Advancement of Materials Recycling 


Public Act 97-853 (HB 4986 - May) created the "Task Force on the Advancement of Materials Recycling.” This group, co-chaired by IEPA and DCEO have begun their work and this site is the organization home of that entity. This site will serve as an historical depository of the work of this group as well as a site to house historical documents (e.g., reports, studies) related to solid waste management, recycling and waste reduction in Illinois.

Please contact Anthony Cefali or David E. Smith for questions about the site or to add content.
