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’s members represent all aspects of California’s reduce-reuse-recycle-compost economy. Our members work for cities, counties, municipal districts, and businesses as well as hauling companies, material processors, non-profit organizations, state agencies, and allied professionals.
CRRA hosted two free half-day workshops to discuss CalRecycle’s draft plan, California’s New Goal: 75% Recycling, the agency's response to the mandate under AB 341 to achieve a state wide 75% recycling goal. On February 13 over seventy-five CRRA members and guests attended the workshop in Oakland, and on February 20 over one-hundred members and guests attended the workshop in Diamond Bar.
