Welcome to the Community Resources Network Ireland
CRNI is the representative body for community based reuse, repair and recycling organisations in Ireland.
Our vision is an Ireland where the word ‘Waste’ doesn’t exist and where our entire community benefits from the social, environmental and economic value of all reusable resources.
Our aim is to provide a range of practical supports to our members, and to promote community based, sustainable waste management as a practical and effective way of tackling Ireland’s growing waste problem.
