Community Enterprises working together towards Zero Waste in New Zealand
The Community Recycling Network is the representative organisation of existing and emerging community groups involved in recycling, reuse, composting, waste reduction and waste education. One path to sustainability lies in recovering the valuable resources currently flowing into our waste streams. Working together towards a Zero Waste future enables communities to protect and enhance their local environment and social economy.
Through the principles of seeking inspiration, fostering connection and community empowerment CRN aims to;
Provide an effective voice and focal point for our sector
Create a network able to provide support, advice, guidance and mentoring
Establish working relationships with key Government agencies and NGO’s
Develop a strategic plan for co-ordinated community action
Foster partnerships with business and local authorities
Work towards our shared Zero Waste future
We all stand together and face what may come in this ‘life with waste’.
