The EMA is currently planning to conduct a survey to collect data on wastes generated and their management for the period January 1st 2013 to December 31st 2015. The title of the study is “An Inventory of Wastes Generated in Trinidad and Tobago from 2013 to 2015”. The data will be used to inform the development of legislation and policies by the EMA to manage wastes.
The EMA previously collected data on hazardous waste generation and management through national inventories conducted for year 2003 and the period 2004-2008 to meet its reporting obligations under the Basel Convention. This survey will focus on both hazardous and non-hazardous wastes.
The proposed period to execute the survey is during the last week of April.
