We're offering two options: 

1. Attend a WELO Enforcement Training at StopWaste in Oakland on November 29, 2018, 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM.

2. Schedule a date in October or November for StopWaste to present the WELO Enforcement Training at your office (limited dates are available; contact us ASAP to request a training).

This free training is available to public agencies in Alameda County. Download our WELO Enforcement Training flyer.
