The Planning, Reporting and Waste Reduction Section (PRWR) reviews the various solid waste region's reports submissions as required by the Solid Waste Act of 1991 (SWMA).  The section also provides information collected from these reports to the public and the solid waste planning regions.

The review includes updates to the solid waste plan, Annual Progress Reports, county recycling reports, and needs assessments submitted by Tennessee's sixty-eight solid waste regions.

This section also provides technical assistance to the sixty-eight solid waste planning regions.  The assistance recycling/diversion programs among a few.  Another service provided is technical assistance workshops on a variety of subjects each quarter.  Please visit our workshops page for the latest workshops.

The Solid Waste Assistance Program contracts and partners with several organizations to assist the solid waste regions in meeting mandated diversion goals. These partners provide services such as the Recycler's Marketing Directory (RMD), Tennessee Materials Exchange (TME), GIS mapping, industrial waste audits, grant writing assistance, commodity marketing assistance, and other  technical assistance. 

PRWR organizes and hosts  workshops and conferences.  These workshops provide a forum to exchange solid waste management information and ideas between Tennessee's sixty-eight solid waste regions, region personnel, and other solid waste and recycling professionals..
