Canada into the United States. Currently, there is no statutory authority under RCRA for providing notice and consent of municipal solid waste imports and exports. EPA is working on a legislative proposal to Congress regarding the transboundary movement of waste between the United States and Canada.

EPA additionally works with the Canadian government, U.S. state agencies, and the Department of Homeland Security on border security issues.
