The California Resource Recovery Association, founded in 1974, is California’s statewide recycling association. It is the oldest and one of the largest non-profit recycling organizations in the United States. CRRA is dedicated to achieving environmental sustainability in and beyond California through Zero Waste strategies including product stewardship, waste prevention, reuse, recycling and composting. CRRA provides its members with resources to advance local, regional and state wide waste reduction efforts which result in critical environmental and climate protection outcomes. CRRA’s members represent all aspects of California’s reduce-reuse-recycle-compost economy. Their members work for cities, counties, municipal districts, and businesses as well as hauling companies, material processors, non-profit organizations, state agencies, and allied professionals.
Our PR Director, Julie Wedge, attended the annual conference last week and picked up some good tips on social media and fundraising. “The quality of the presenters, combined with the interest of the daily keynote speaker, was impressive. The annual meeting and legislative update were both informative and showed a forward thinking attitude toward zero waste.”
Julie suggests that any one who is part of the recycling community should take advantage of the resources of the CRRA.
