Welcome to the College and University Recycling Coalition (CURC)!

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about CURC, and all the information and resources we have to offer you. Our goal is to help you in facilitating the exchange of technical knowledge and best practices on recycling and waste reduction programs among institutions of higher education.

Explore online learning opportunities through the CURC Webinar Series on current topics and actively engage through the in-person CURC Regional Workshops all designed to enhance your knowledge of recycling and waste reduction.  Sign-up right away for current offerings by registering now.  If you would like to view an archived webinar, become a CURC member and all of them are available to you.

Becoming a CURC member also provides you with additional opportunities to get to know others with common interests in recycling, waste reduction, zero waste, social marketing and sustainable materials management both professionally and individually.

CURC members receive a quarterly e-newsletter along with archive newsletters for you to peruse. CURC membership is free and easy to join, so register now!  Membership is targeted specifically for professionals working directly in collegiate recycling, zero waste and materials management fields. Individuals from other organizations that support that work are also welcome to join.

Happy Recycling,
The CURC Board
