Why You Should Become a Member of CRRA

The California Resource Recovery Association (CRRA) is an environmentally focused professional organization for people involved in resource conservation through waste prevention, reuse, recycling and composting activities.  CRRA members use their collective knowledge and experience to create and help implement innovative solutions and programs to reduce material going to landfill.  The Association works closely with the individuals and organizations that influence and shape conservation and waste prevention policy and programs.  CRRA provides a variety of forums and venues that increase communication among government, industry and environmental organizations. 

CRRA is a conduit to all facets of resource conservation and actively influences the future waste prevention, reuse, recycling and composting policies and markets in California.  CRRA facilitates workshops, discussion lists, conferences and networking opportunities to engage members to think about the bigger picture, the ever changing environmental issues, we face locally, regionally and worldwide.  CRRA members are encouraged to focus on new ideas and practices that will help create jobs, reduce waste, conserve and preserve natural resources, build a sustainable economy and protect the environment.  The result is open dialogue within the membership which enables all of us to make our resource conservation efforts stronger, more effective, sustainable and profitable.  Together we help conserve precious and finite resources, and collectively we are able to meet the challenges of state and federal mandates.
