On December 20th, CVWMA
will celebrate 30 years of regional collaboration. More than 1.2 million people
now have more convenient access to recycling. A few of our proudest accomplishments include a regional recycling rate
of over 50%; we've recycled 2.8 million tons
over 30 years; and given back over $11 million to our member localities.
We are truly proud of CVWMA's track record of success in bringing together 13 local governments
to not only achieve common goals and objectives , but to advance our region in best practices in recycling and solid waste management. As we celebrate 30 years, I would be remiss if I did not recognize and thank our dedicated and passionate Board of Directors
The region as well as the waste and recycling industries have come a long way since 1990 in raising awareness on the importance of waste reduction, reuse, recycling and best practices in managing waste and changing behaviors. CVWMA has developed a wide array of regional programs
that balance economics and environmental stewardship. We look forward to a future where recycling and solid waste management leads social, economic, and environmental advances in the region.
is quite rich and the future is bright. We are well on our way to being the recognized leader in regionally sustainable waste management practices that protect the environment and we look forward to working with regional leaders toward a more sustainable region.
