COIVD-19 Resources


Welcome to the Georgia Recycling Coalition! Our mission is to complement and coordinate activities relative to recycling, to foster communications among professionals, organizations, government agencies and individuals, and to promote and enhance waste reduction and recycling programs throughout the state of Georgia.

Call for Presenters!

GRC’s 32nd Annual Conference, Trade Show and Membership Meeting will be held on October 22-25, 2023 at the King & Prince on St. Simons Island. This year’s conference will focus on successes, challenges, and the path forward for growing and sustaining recycling in Georgia. We are seeking presenters who would like to share their innovations, solutions, programs, and projects toward this goal. The annual GRC conference is an opportunity for anyone in the recycling and sustainable materials management industries to connect, learn what’s on the horizon, and leave refreshed and motivated. We have prepared a guide that provides helpful information; we invite you to review the guide and then complete the proposal form by June 15, 2023. Learn more and view the guide with tips and more information about submitting a presentation proposal.
