About CURC

The College and University Recycling Coalition (CURC) is a membership-based nonprofit organization made up of campus-based recycling professionals seeking to exchange technical knowledge and best practices on recycling and waste reduction programs between institutions of higher learning. Originally formed in 1992, CURC became a technical council of the National Recycling Coalition in 1995 before branching off as an independent organization in 2009. Today, CURC counts nearly 900 members and is led by a steering committee of recycling and sustainability program managers from universities across the United States. Among other initiatives, CURC supports collegiate recycling programs through webinar series, annual workshops, a quarterly e-newsletter and the development of best-practices manuals and toolkits. CURC’s webinar series is done in partnership with The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) sponsored by the Alcoa Foundation and Keep America Beautiful, Inc.
