    The rapid growth of the recycling industry - 550% since 1989 (CalRecycle estimate) means that experienced recyclers need to continually stay up-to-date and also share knowledge with employees, job seekers, municipal staff, elected officials and community advocates.

    Since 1995, NCRA has made this easy by offering Introduction to Recycling, a three-day, 16-hour course - approximately 30 times. A quintessential exploration of the history of the recycling and Zero Waste movement, Introduction to Recycling offers both newcomers and seasoned professionals a critical overview of current concepts, practices and terminology.

    Most of each day will be spent listening to guest speakers, discussing concepts and completing thought-provoking exercises.

    The tour will begin with a presentation in the Environmental Learning Center about recycling and composting in San Francisco, a walk through the Transfer station site, a visit to the studios of the Artist in Residence Program, and a trip to Recycle Central where all of the blue bin materials are sorted. To visit the second site, you must drive (no Uber or bicycles).
