Waste Management GIS Data and Maps

Division of Waste Management Site Locator Tool

Example of the Site Locator Tool screen







The division has created the Division of Waste Management Site Locator Tool that provides free online access to currently available information about the sites that the Division of Waste Management manages, permits and inventories. The Tool is a GIS-based application that consolidates all of the Division’s sites into an interactive map. It provides this information in a simple map format, and has the capability to query, create reports, overlay GIS layers, print maps and link to site-specific documents. The search window has been programmed, so that people can find sites by address, name or identification number.
