Recyclers Global Warming Council

CRRA’s Recyclers Global Warming Council (RGWC) represents interests within CRRA to address the issue of greenhouse gases.  It identifies resources, facilitates discussions and organizes workshops and CRRA conference sessions to inform the CRRA membership, the greater resource recovery community, and other interested parties how Zero Waste strategies (Reduce-Reuse-Recycle-Compost) can minimize greenhouse gas impacts.  RGWC works with other organizations with similar interests to advocate Zero Waste policies and programs to reduce greenhouse gases.

We welcome the involvement of CRRA members and others interested in working together on this issue. Please contact RGWC Chair Mark Gagliardi. Learn more about CRRA and the benefits of membership.
