GrassRoots Recycling Network
The GrassRoots Recycling Network is a North American network of recycling and community-based activists who advocate policies and practices to achieve zero waste, to end corporate welfare for waste, and to create sustainable jobs from discards.
We see recycling, litter pickup and waste disposal as "unfunded mandates" on taxpayers by producers of products and packaging that have little incentive to recycle or make recyclable products.
