Thank You to Our Volunteers!

The Maryland Recycling Network seeks to serve the needs of its members – and the recycling community at large – by being a resource and advocate for all involved in the 3R’s. But none of this is possible without the hard work of our Chapter volunteers!

So what have our volunteers achieved this past year?

2015 Composting Bill Amended

As advocates for the Maryland recycling community, we strive to work closely with the Maryland Legislature to ensure our state's laws and regulations promote the sustainable reduction, reuse and recycling of materials otherwise destined for the landfill. We also recognize how important it is for those most affected by these laws, i.e., counties, municipalities, communities and vendors, have a voice in what is feasible in terms of cost and time.
