Guam EPA Environmental Education Programs

Guam EPA is committed to public outreach and information sharing. Through public awareness campaigns and other activities, Guam EPA aims to increase public participation in the protection of Guam's environment.

The Agency is currently developing a comprehensive description of its environmental education activities for inclusion on this web site. Also under development are several pages highlighting local environmental issues and ways the public can become involved. Guam EPA has also developed a fact sheet on What to Do With Household Hazardous Waste that includes a list of companies and organizations accepting materials for proper disposal and/or recycling.
