Collegiate Recyclers Coalition

The Mission of the Collegiate Recyclers Coalition (CRC) is to promote sustainable resource use through waste reduction, reuse, and recycling on college campuses and to facilitate networking, exchange of information and strategic action.

History: The CRC was founded in 1990 by a group of  concerned collegiate recycling coordinators with the goal of sharing information to develop more comprehensive and supportive RRR programs across North and South Carolina. Since that time, the CRC has hosted seven conferences, increased its membership by 200% and successfully grown to become a well-respected organization in the recycling community.

Upcoming Events:

Summer Regional Meeting
@ Appalachian State University in conjunction with the Appalachian Energy Summit


Monday, July 10, 2017 at 10am
CRC Business Meeting
12:00pm-1:30pm– Networking Lunch (lunch will be provided)

Attendees are welcome to attend the CRC meeting and stay and be a part of the Appalachian Energy Summit Zero Waste/Waste Reduction Working Group. This group is charged with elevating the importance of sustainable purchasing decisions and waste reduction efforts at their respective colleges and universities.

You are welcome to attend the CRC meeting only, or both the CRC meeting and Summit if you would like.

As always, this invitation-only event is free to all university and government employees and includes delicious meals beginning Monday evening through lunch on Wednesday.  Single-occupancy rooms with private bath in Appalachian’s Mountaineer Hall are available at no charge.

In exchange for our hospitality, we ask that you register before June 2nd to assist us with the planning required to make your visit a success and to accurately project accommodation, meal and program requirements for up to 500 honored guests!
