About MRN

Our Mission: Our mission is to promote sustainable reduction, reuse and recycling (the 3 "R's") in Maryland.

Our vision is that materials otherwise destined for disposal are reused or recycled and there is a demand for buying products made with recycled material content. 

How We Do This: We serve as resource to provide education and information to professionals in the field and the public. We accomplish this through a combination of education programs, advocacy activities to affect public policy, technical assistance, and the development of markets to purchase recycled materials and manufacture products with recycled content.

Who We Are: Individuals and organizations from every facet of recycling who join together to promote the 3 "R's" of recycling. This includes communities, county coordinators, agencies, non-profit organizations, businesses, and recycling activists. We are led by a board of directors drawn from all sectors. Our board meetings are open and normally held on the third Tuesday of each month, beginning at 10 a.m. and concluding around noon except as noted otherwise.
