Our Mission

The Canadian Resource Recovery Council (CRRC) represents industry, associations, and other stakeholders committed to sustainable environmental policies.  We stand for the promotion, adoption, and implementation of resource recovery processes, including energy-from-waste (EFW) and select conversion technologies, for the management of residual materials within the context of an integrated solid waste management system.

A Progressive Agenda for Resource Recovery

A National Industry Association

The CRRC will bridge that gap by proactively engaging in the development of public policies that address common concerns and creating a national forum for the exchange of ideas.

Waste Mythologies

What do you know about Resource Recovery?

Resource recovery can take many forms, ranging from a proven diversion process to an advanced energy-from-waste technology. But regardless which resource recovery system is adopted, it always results in the safe management of solid waste – whether it be municipal, industrial, commercial, institutional, or agricultural – and the efficient recovery of clean renewable energy in the form of steam, heat, electricity, or alternative fuels.
