A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

Our children are not thinking about micro-plastics in our drinking water, hazardous waste management, or the trillions of pounds of trash and valuable resources filling up our landfills. We do that for them. Nebraska Recycling Council (NRC) works towards a future in which all materials and resources are reserved for the highest and best use and landfill disposal is the last resort. In 2020, we had 2,876 individuals reach out to us for recycling assistance, NRC contacted 1333 individuals, including distributing waste reduction and recycling resources to 26 businesses and 576 schools in 20 southeast and northeast counties. NRC created a Community Materials Management Toolkit with 22 subject categories and more than 390 resource documents. 2020 has been a hard year, full of uncertainties, change, and navigating uncharted waters. Nebraska Recycling Council has been working on your behalf to stay at the forefront of recycling and composting to support the future generations. We are all in this together!
