Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging in Recycling

The Recycling Partnership Stands Up and Speaks Out for Equity and Inclusion

The Recycling Partnership has called community, company, and industry partners to listen, learn and do more to uphold equality. We pledge to do the same by applying the following strategies.

Our Team

Inside our organization, we foster a culture of belonging through inclusion efforts and commit to diversifying both staff and board through thoughtful, intentional recruitment and continuous learning. The spirit and essence of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) is embedded in all of our actions, values, and communications.

Our Work

We are working with communities to increase equitable recycling access, education, and participation while conducting much-needed research to fully understand those gaps, so we can best support BIPOC populations who are historically under-served and under-supported. We are integrating a multicultural lens into all of our workstreams to ensure consideration of diverse perspectives is a core part of our mission.

Our Industry

Within our industry, we are supporting the advancement of people of color through the creation of a fellowship program. By bringing young, brilliant minds into this historically monochromatic industry, we will propel the diversification and equitable representation of all people that make up the cultural mosaic that is America.
