The Recycling Partnership Announces Fourth Annual Resource Recycling Conference Grants

The Recycling Partnership, in association with Resource Recycling, Inc., is pleased to announce the fourth annual Steve Thompson Memorial Grant, giving free travel, accommodations and registration for the 2019 Resource Recycling Conference to the chosen winners.

Recycling industry leader Steve Thompson was a committed recycling champion who worked tirelessly to move the industry forward. The Recycling Partnership and Resource Recycling are honoring him and his life’s work by offering grants to recycling professionals for the fourth year in a row.

The 2019 Resource Recycling Conference will be held in New Orleans, LA from Aug. 26-28. The grant includes conference registration, a two-night hotel stay, and travel reimbursement up to $500.

“With current market challenges, recycling coordinators are vocal in their need for technical and financial support. That’s why we’re honored to announce that, for the fourth year in a row, The Recycling Partnership is issuing the Steve Thompson Memorial Grants, allowing us to bring together 50-plus state and local leaders to learn, collaborate and identify actionable solutions to recycling’s most serious challenges,” said Keefe Harrison, CEO of The Recycling Partnership. “Partnering with Resource Recycling to host attendees at the Resource Recycling Conference is a wonderful chance for us to leverage dollars to directly improve the health of public recycling programs in the U.S. I actively invite other industry members to join us in funding these grants so we can grow the funding base, expanding to an even broader network of professionals committed to transforming recycling for good.”
