The California Resource Recovery Association (CRRA, founded 1974) is California’s statewide recycling association. It is the oldest and one of the largest non-profit recycling organizations in the United States. A 501(C)3 organization, 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.
GRRN has a vision of the world where waste is not waste – it is a resource. We are the voice of all those who recycle and want to waste less and do more. GRRN is the leading voice calling for Zero Waste (ZW) in the United States by promoting the message that we must go “beyond recycling” and go upstream to the headwaters of the waste stream which is the industrial designer’s desk. ZW means not only 100% recovery of society’s discards, but also a redesign of the products and packaging of our lives such that everything produced for our consumer economy is non-toxic and designed to be recovered for re-use, recycling or composting.Website

In the FVRD, responsible waste management is a shared concern and a shared responsibility. Most of our six member municipalities (Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission, Harrison Hot Springs, Hope and Kent) provide waste management services to their residents, while the FVRD offers a number of garbage and recycling services to its electoral area residents.Although our region provides waste management services and programs, our goal is to reduce the amount of garbage that is generated and landfilled. This goal and the strategies to accomplish it are outlined in theFVRD’s Solid Waste Management Plan; a ten year plan which guides the region’s solid waste management practices. We are currently updating this plan to reflect how the region will manage an increasing waste problem driven by an increasing population.fvrd.bc.ca

Solid Waste & Recycling Magazine

Bag To Earth
The leading Canadian manufacturer of 100% paper organic waste bags.
Our bags live up to their name by breaking down and completely disappearing into the earth, helping food scraps and yard waste to do the same. During their short time on this earth, our bags make it easy for households to participate in the right organic waste cycle by effectively diverting organic food and yard waste from the landfill to composting sites.
