Our Mission is to keep the CCPC story alive in public memory, for the purpose of inspiring citizens to take action on their current concerns about the environment in these days of climate change. We have a Board, a Development Committee, Subcommittees, Volunteers and a group of CCPC veterans called "Friends of Recycling Revisited".
