FALLS CHURCH, VA. June 9, 2017 – The Recycling Partnership, in association with Resource Recycling, Inc. is pleased to announce the second annual Steve Thompson Memorial Grant, giving free travel, accommodations and registration for the 2017 Resource Recycling Conference.

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

Last year, 10 grants were offered. This year, The Recycling Partnership is investing $50,000 to provide free rides to the eighth annual Resource Recycling Conference, held in Minneapolis August 28-30, 2017, including registration, airfare and accommodations.

“Our industry is constantly evolving and ensuring that recycling officials at the local level stay up to speed is key to a healthier recycling system,” say Keefe Harrison, The Recycling Partnership CEO. “That’s why we’re so pleased to offer these exciting new education grants. They’ll enable recyclers from all across the country who couldn’t otherwise attend a chance to meet with peers, share new best management practices, and join the Recycling Partnership team at the Resource Recycling Conference.” The application and details about the grant program are available at
