In 1981, four New Hampshire municipalities founded the Northeast Resource Recovery Association, then called the New Hampshire Resource Recovery Association, to provide a clearinghouse for current, up to date information and a source of technical and marketing assistance in the general areas of waste reduction and recycling.
Since then, membership in the NRRA has grown to include over 300 municipalities, individuals, and businesses in New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Southern Maine. The NRRA is a member driven organization whose programs are designed and overseen by the members they serve.
The NRRA provides cooperative purchasing programs, educational and networking opportunities, technical assistance, and cooperative marketing programs that have received national recognition for establishing innovative grassroots recyclables marketing cooperatives with competitive pricing which enables small, rural and large urban communities to manage their own recycling programs!
Francestown earns revenues from selling their recycled plastics & tins and paper to the NRRA. We also dispose of refrigerant materials and tires through the NRRA as they are the most cost effective vendor.
Another exciting fact about the NRRA is they recycle everything they take from our transfer station. Nothing goes into a landfill or incinerator.
They are a very helpful organization and we plan on continuing the great relationship we have with them.
