Opportunity Details
CommentsRecycling Revisited is a Registered not-for-profit organization. We are in our 8th year after reviving our original organization which pioneered recycling in Canada (1970-1983). That early organization had the name "Citizens' Committee for Pollution Control" (CCPC). Our new name as a registered Non-Profit is "Recycling Revisited Inc." 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".
