Sustainable Materials Management Meeting to be Held Next Month

April 22, 2022

The next stakeholder meeting for the Iowa Department of Natural Resource’s Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Initiative will take place in person on May 23 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in West Des Moines. Virtual participation is an option as well. In March 2021, the DNR launched the process for developing short, medium and long-term strategies to transition Iowa to a state that uses and reuses materials more productively over their entire life cycles. Subcommittees were formed to identify SMM strategies. ABI staff has participated in some of these subcommittee meetings over the last several months. During the May 23 meeting, the subcommittees will present their recommendations to the broader group.
