The executive committee of the National Recycling Coalition (NRC) has announced a July 21, 2017, deadline as it seeks candidates who wish to serve as the organization’s executive director.


The NRC, which describes itself as a nonprofit organization focused on the promotion and enhancement of recycling in the United States, says it is “nearing its 40th year as the national recycling network of more than 6,000 members through 23-affiliated recycling organizations.”


The NRC says it is seeking “a strong individual [who] conveys the voice of the NRC membership and can lead the organization into the next 40 years.”


During a 2016 recycling industry conference, the NRC says its board of directors adopted and presented the NRC Strategic Plan to its membership. The plan has been designed to help guide the NRC in accomplishing four major goals:


  • to have NRC seen as the primary forum where stakeholders come together to share information and address issue of mutual concern;
  • to build stronger recycling organization affiliate partnerships;
  • for the NRC to be seen as a reasoned voice on policy issues; and
  • to build a sustainable and expanding membership, diverse funding and assured health and vitality as an organization.


The NRC says a new executive director will be asked to represent the organization, address national recycling issues, raise the funds necessary to accomplish its mission, expand the NRC’s membership and build a stronger voice through the organization’s partners.


The NRC says the position was initially proposed as a six-month contract, but the  group “expect[s] that the right candidate will enable NRC to continue and expand upon this level of commitment thereafter.”
