U.S. EPA Region 5's Disaster Debris Recovery Tool (DDRT) promotes the proper recovery, recycling, and disposal of disaster debris for emergency planners and responders at the federal, state, tribal, and local levels. The scope of the tool can also reach beyond disasters to include green site remediation and materials management technical assistance.

The DDRT maps location and contact information of over 6,000 facilities including composters, demolition contractors, transfer stations, landfills and facilities recycling construction and demolition materials, electronics, household hazardous waste, metals, tires and vehicles.

This webinar will feature presenters from Region 5 and the Mille Lacs Band of Ojbwe. Region 5 will introduce the history, purpose and a provide a demonstration of the tool. DDRT users from Millie Lacs Band and Region 5 will explain their experience using the tool in both a disaster debris planning and response perspective.
