• Why Join?

  • Since its founding, the CRC has continued to provide a broad range of important services to its members and the state as a whole, including:

    Professional Development – through lectures, workshops and its series of “No-Frills Tours”, the CRC delivers the latest and greatest information on programs, technology and materials that make good recycling programs better.
    Government Affairs – the CRC serves as both the voice and the eyes for recyclers.   The CRC and its members track legislation and government programs on behalf of membership, sharing it through meetings, email and one-on-one communication.  The CRC also lobbies in Hartford, providing the expert opinions legislators need to pass the best laws.  The CRC and its members played key roles in the passage of legislation for the end-of-life programs for electronics, paint and mattresses.
    Networking - meeting and greeting the private and public players in the world of recycling has always been a great asset of CRC membership. Programs are improved and new partnerships created as businesses, government and citizen organizations meet to establish relationships and ongoing dialogues.
