The Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement (CME) Task Force within the ASTSWMO Hazardous Waste Subcommittee and the Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Task Force within the ASTSWMO Materials Management Subcommittee collaborated to produce a series of three fact sheets on emerging wastes from renewable energy sources: lithium-ion batteries with a focus on electric vehicle batteries; photovoltaic modules; and wind turbine blades. The fact sheets are intended to be living documents to be periodically updated with new information.
Radiological Disaster Debris Self-Assessment Questionnaire – Phase 1
The Radiation Task Force within the ASTSWMO Materials Management Subcommittee has developed a Radiological Disaster Debris Self-Assessment Questionnaire to assist State and Territorial (State) agencies in determining the level of preparedness for late phase radiological disaster debris management. The questionnaire is intended to be used by State agencies in charge of the oversight of radiological materials and wastes. In Phase 2 of this project, the Task Force will create an answer sheet to accompany the questionnaire, and enhance the document information and format.
