These awards were presented at NRRA’s 32nd Annual Conference and Expo on June 3rd and 4th. This year featured the 4th Annual School Recycling Conference within the NRRA Conference at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, NH. The Conference & Expo was a great opportunity for those interested in recycling and waste reduction to come together to discover new technologies, exchange ideas, share philosophies, and further promote waste reduction efforts.
The 4th Annual School Recycling Conference was sponsored in part by NH the Beautiful. New Hampshire the Beautiful, Inc. (NHtB) has been a longtime supporter of the NRRA School CLUB and environmental education in NH. NHtB (www.nhthebeautiful.org) is a private non-profit charitable trust founded in 1983 and supported by the soft drink, malt beverage, and grocery industries of New Hampshire. NHtB offers municipal recycling grants, recycling education grants (over $2.5 million), recycling signs, anti-litter programs, and technical assistance. NHtB is a unique organization that represents a voluntarily-funded alternative to expensive legislation intended to achieve the same end results.
