WHO WE ARE

The Coalition for Resource Recovery (CoRR) aims to find national solutions for resource and asset recovery. The Coalition’s vision is to eliminate the concept of waste so that the waste from one activity is food for another, benefitting the economy, people, and the environment. Our goal is to close the loop on materials that reduce resource loss, energy consumption, and greenhouse gas emissions which cause climate change.

Our Mission

The Coalition for Resource Recovery is dedicated to combating climate change generating business value through transforming waste into assets. CoRR’s activities include:

  • Conducting pilots and bringing successful models to scale

  • Evaluating the environmental and financial performance of programs and technologies and disseminating objective, third-party reports of results

  • Apprising the public, city, and businesses of progress toward waste diversion, cost savings, and greenhouse gas reduction goals

  • Promoting effective technologies and programs

GROWING GREEN JOBS

Waste disposal in urban areas currently places a disproportionate burden on lower-income communities. For example, in New York City 25% of waste is processed at 15 transfer stations within a mile radius in the South Bronx, exposing communities to increased truck traffic and air pollution, and lowering property values. Through increasing resource recovery, we can reduce this impact and increase green job growth.
