Solid Waste & Recycling Program


The Nez Perce Tribe’s history and culture are centered on respecting the earth (’apaqa’ánno’ ’ee kaa ’epeqíicx̣nu’ wéetesne). The decision to protect the earth through proper solid waste removal and recycling is not just a matter of economics and politics, it is about indigenous people taking action to maintain the natural resources they rely upon. Recycling and composting provide a holistic approach to managing waste while preserving the Nimi’ipuu way of life for future generations.
