Tribal Environmental Program
Maniilaq Assocication has committed the “Tribal Environmental Program” (TEP) to establish a comprehensive backhaul-recycling program in the region benefiting the health and the environment of current and future generations of inhabitants of the northwest arctic.
The TEP has implemented such a recycling program in Kotzebue as well as a regional backhaul program to assist communities within our service area stage and transport recyclable materials via Kotzebue to Anchorage and/or Seattle. The project is a partnership between Maniilaq Association and its member tribes, City of Kotzebue, Northwest Arctic Borough/Municipalities, and regional transportation providers.
