Company Description

The Northeast Recycling Council, Inc. (NERC)’s mission is to minimize waste, conserve
natural resources, and advance a sustainable economy through facilitated collaboration
and action. Since 1985, NERC has led projects that influence policy and affect change
through research, technical assistance, and education. NERC is committed to recycling
market development to optimize and propel new solutions for – and equitable access to –
sustainable materials management.
As a multi-state 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, our programs emphasize source
reduction, reuse, recycling, composting, environmentally preferable purchasing, and
decreasing the toxicity of the solid waste stream in the 11-state region comprised of
Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York,
Maryland, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont. NERC’s members extend beyond
member states to 100+ organizations dedicated to achieving an environmentally
sustainable economy.
We are committed to representing our diverse world while providing equitable access to
effective sustainable materials management. Our goal is to foster an inclusive culture that
recognizes and values people from all communities.
