Think Summer!

Summer Webinars, That Is!


In lieu of our Annual Conference, we have reached out to our Conference speakers to line up a series of summer webinars. Special pricing and packages will be offered. Watch for details and registration information to be announced in the coming week!

To kick off the Summer Webinar Series, NRRA Executive Director Reagan Bissonnette and NRRA Member Services Manager Bonnie Bethune will discuss the logistics of negotiating contracts. This first webinar will be free thanks to the generous support of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services!

Professional Development Credits will be available where applicable.

So much has changed in the last few months!  With our students studying remotely, we are proud to announce that we have launched a “Blizzard Bag” series of recycling lessons available to all teachers, parents and students. We are calling it our Recycling SHIP (Supporting Home Instruction Program).  We are taking lessons from our 3R’s of the Common Core and Teaching Toxics curricula, adding activities, videos and games to provide a diverse weekly lesson. Just go to our Teacher Resources Tab to access them!

Our FREE recycling lessons are being made available due to the generous support of NH the Beautiful!


We look forward to presenting our workshops and technical assistance programs when schools are cleared to reopen.  Until then, we hope you will use these lessons and our newsletters to keep current with “all things recycling!”

Our latest project is our TOLD to Go Tool Kit.  The kit is now available for rental and has all the instructions and tools you will need to conduct your own school waste audit – when schools reopen! For more information, contact





Need Professional Development Credits? We Have the Answer – Virtually!




We’ve created 14 webinars through our USDA Rural Development Town & Gown Grant.   The webinars are designed to connect schools with their town transfer stations and waste management districts You can find the links on our Resources Tab. Professional development credits are available to teachers and operators where applicable.
