Municipal Recycling Services

 Cooperative Marketing

NRRA is one of only a handful of nonprofits in the country that operates a recyclables marketing cooperative, which means that we directly connect sellers of recyclable commodities to purchasers of those commodities.  NRRA's municipal members produce large volumes of high-quality material.  We work with reputable vendors and provide our members with expanded market options and consistent pricing.  NRRA provides a monthly pricing guide for voting municipal members only.

Cooperative Purchasing

By taking advantage of bulk buying power, NRRA offers its municipal members discounted pricing to purchase items such as baling wire, gripples and more.

Education & Technical Assistance

NRRA offers many educational resources for communities, including regular Member Operations Marketing meetings, an annual Recycling Conference & Expo, and a municipal members-only listserv. 

In addition, municipal officials and solid waste operators often have questions regarding recycling trends, proper processing techniques or market specifications, but are unsure where to call to get the correct answer.  NRRA assists its membership by acting as a one-stop clearinghouse of information through its Member Services Team.
