Second St., Winslow.
ADEQ encourages community members, business people, public officials, and school representatives in Winslow, and the surrounding area to attend this free two-hour event. Following brief presentations, attendees can engage in open dialogue and a question and answer session.
ENVIRONMENTAL RESOURCES ROADSHOW
ADEQ: successful municipal recycling programs such as electronic waste and food recovery
ADEQ: how communities can benefit from ADEQ’s technical expertise and brownfields grants
ADOT: volunteer process for adopting sections of Arizona highways for litter cleanup
KAZB: statewide litter prevention and beautification programs
Brownfields are properties with active redevelopment potentially hindered by known or perceived environmental contamination. ADEQ’s non-competitive brownfields grant program has funded more than 50 projects assisting local governments and nonprofits in completing environmental assessments and cleanup. Currently accepting applications, ADEQ’s brownfields grant program conducts projects through Arizona’s State Response Grant using funds provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
