The NRRA School Recycling Club

Northeast Resource Recovery Association

2020 Conference


2020 Officially Cancelled

Due to the Coronavirus and resulting public health concerns, we have officially cancelled our School Recycling Conference set for May 18 & 19, 2020.

Instead, plans are in the works to offer a webinar series featuring workshops we had lined up for the Conference.  Stay tuned for updates!

NEW – We have decided to offer FREE Weekly Recycling Lessons from our new curricula: Three Rs of the Common Core and Teaching Toxics. Teachers, parents and students are free to access these lessons on our RESOURCES tab.

We hope you stay connected to “all things recycling!”







Traditionally, NH the Beautiful sponsors free School Recycling CLUB Membership for all NH schools. They also generously offer all NH schools a 50% matching grant on CLUB recycling programs and our Annual Conference.

(NH Schools MUST be CLUB members to receive the discount.  Simply fill out our Online Membership Application – it’s FREE.)

NEW: In light of our Conference cancellation, NH the Beautiful has most generously agreed to sponsor our weekly Free Recycling Lesson Program!  Thank you NH the Beautiful for continuing to keep recycling programs strong!
