Division of Materials Management

The Mission of the Division of Materials Management is to Protect the Environment and Public Health Through Fulfillment of Two Broad Goals:

  • Minimize waste and maximize the use of recyclable materials, while ensuring that solid waste management facilities within the State are operated properly. By capturing the economic value of materials, their imbedded energy is conserved and the generation of greenhouse gases and pollution is minimized.
  • Ensure safe and appropriate management of pesticides and provide protection from exposure to them, through regulation of pesticide registration, sales and application and related enforcement/compliance, as well as technical assistance and outreach.
