Hazardous Waste Collection Community Engagement

The Lincoln/Lancaster County Health Department and the City of Lincoln Public Works and Utilities Department wanted to expand the Toxics-reduction Program and explore the possibility of having a permanent location for hazardous waste disposal. As part of that project expansion they wanted to provide opportunities for meaningful involvement of community members. Researchers from the Center helped to promote community dialogue, as well as used focus groups and survey formats to gather ideas from the community on how a future permanent hazardous waste site should operate to maximize its impacts on health and safety.
