CRNI was founded with the aim of promoting community based, sustainable waste management as a practical and effective way of tackling Ireland’s growing waste problem.
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.
CRNI will continue work towards our strategic objectives to support our Members and mainstream the community resources sector during this unprecedented time.
The safety of our staff and community is of the utmost importance so our team is working remotely from home for the foreseeable future and, where possible, we will provide virtual alternatives to in-person events during this time.
We encourage you to continue to support CRNI Members, who are social enterprises, charities or SMEs. Please visit their websites and digital channels and our Reuse & Recycling during COVID-19 resource page for more information.
Stay well, Claire & Christine
