   Sustainable Practices in Public Works

The APWA Center for Sustainability is pleased to introduce the first issue of “Sustainable Practices in Public Works” – now available on our website.

This resource was developed in collaboration with APWA’s Technical Committees. The Center for Sustainability is grateful to the Technical Committees who contributed to this resource by identifying sustainable practice examples within their discipline (transportation, water, fleet, leadership and management, etc.) and providing information about where and how these practices are being implemented.

The Center hopes ‘Sustainable Practices in Public Works’ proves a useful resource for APWA members!
