A Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources

Waste Reduction

The Land Protection Branch's Recovered Materials Unit (RMU) encourages the reduction, reuse, and recycling of materials; provides technical assistance on recycling and technologies that use recovered materials and industrial by-products; and is responsible for developing a comprehensive materials management strategy for Georgia.

RMU staff members also manage EEinGeorgia.org, an online guide to environmental education (EE) that provides teachers, non-formal educators, and parents with the tools and resources they need to help children learn about the environment and develop skills that will enable them to make responsible decisions to maintain, restore, and protect it.
