Education

MRN provides education for recycling professionals and advocates throughout the year. Education opportunities include our Annual Conference, webinars, workshops and facility tours.

Advocacy

Every year, the Maryland General Assembly considers upwards of 2,500 bills of which as many as 700 or more may become law. And all this happens during a 90-day session! MRN advocates on behalf of the Maryland recycling community to ensure that legislative initiatives achieve their stated goals in a cost- and time-effective manner without creating unintended consequences that hobble our mission to promote a healthy, sustainable environment.
