Help Us Celebrate NRRA's 40th Anniversary!

Celebrating 40 Years of Making Recycling Strong

Did you know that 2021 marks NRRA's 40th anniversary?  In 1981, four New Hampshire municipalities founded the Northeast Resource Recovery Association, then called the New Hampshire Resource Recovery Association, to provide a clearinghouse for current, up-to-date information and a source of technical and marketing assistance in the general areas of waste reduction and recycling.   Since then, membership in NRRA has grown to include over 400 municipalities, individuals, and businesses in New England.  We're asking our members to help us celebrate our 40th anniversary by sharing how NRRA has benefited your community.  We'll then share some of these stories on our website, in future Full of Scrap newsletters, and other communications throughout 2021.
