Our mission is to advance effective recycling by sharing resources, education and advocacy opportunities.
We envision an Iowa where every material that can be reused or recycled is put to its highest and best use.
The Iowa Recycling Association is a membership-based, non-profit organization serving as the voice of recycling in Iowa since 1989.
Our members are individuals and organizations, businesses and industry, local governments and educational institutions working together to create a healthy environment and a healthy economy by promoting recycling and waste-reduction activities.
We provide information and education to industry professionals, policy makers and the public. We accomplish this through programming, advocacy, resource sharing and networking opportunities.
We are led by a Board of Directors drawn from all sectors. Our Board meetings are open and normally held on the third Thursday of every other month. The meetings are located at member sites and other locations around the state. IRA members are encouraged to attend!
