Public Engagement Questions
A Request for Comment and Solutions


The CT Coalition for Sustainable Materials Management (CCSMM) is eager to engage the public, interested stakeholders, affected communities, and members of the waste sector - including service providers, developers, and innovators - to solicit input, concepts, and considerations for sustainable materials management solutions in four focus areas. To initiate that engagement, the Coalition invites interested members of the public to provide responses to several Public Engagement Questions.

Comments are requested on the described focus areas by October 15, 2020, though late comments can be submitted and will be considered as received through the fall of 2020, when the Coalition will be conducting its work.
