The Green Movement

We are unique in the “green” movement in that we bring all the players together: public agencies which facilitate recycling, vendors (processors, composting systems, haulers) which power recycling, legislators and regulators who make critical funding and legislative decisions, and facility managers. We also invite citizens who want to assure Maryland has and acts on a vibrant green vision to be MRN supporters.
