Zero Waste Conference, June 1997, Monterey, CA

The Global Recycling Council (GRC) evolved as a council of the California
Resource Recovery Association (CRRA) and is dedicated to the CRRA membership
goal to communicate, discuss and advocate, in this case global resource
conservation and recovery issues.

This years agenda has not been formerly diuscussed but in the original
momemntum to begin the council: the zero waste, jobs from discards, and
end subsidies for wasting goals are envisioned as overall themes as written
in the CRRA newly adopted Agenda for the New Millennium. The fine tuning of
this important bridge to the sustainable planet will be a priority project.

Current ideas on the the table include zero waste committtees in every city,
eco-industrial parks for market and zero waste development, a recycling in
the future track at the CRRA Conference in San Diego (5/98) and international
actions for corporate responsibility.

To become a member in the observational stages of involvement and participate
in the discussion: log onto the CRRA listserve. To get there:
e-mail and in the text box type subscribe CRRA.

To get involved join CRRA, go to a local chapter meeting and begin a zero
waste committee.
