Our vision

Community Resources Network Ireland is the all-Ireland representative body for community-based reuse, recycling and waste prevention organisations.

Our vision is for 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 strategic goals

Provide a range of supports for CRNI Members, through a dynamic network, supports to strengthen member’s capacity, representing members and promoting our membership base.

Mainstream the Community Resources Sector through influencing behavioral change, positioning CRNI as a “Go-To” organisation on community based repair, reuse and recycling, and supporting innovative research and pilot projects.

Develop the capacity of the network.

Our role

As CRNI is the only community reuse and recycling network operating on the island, it has, along with its members, the potential to play a unique and valuable role in the development of resource efficiency and circular economy initiatives at both local and national levels.

CRNI is funded by the Environmental Protection Agency as part of the National Waste Prevention Programme. The network is on the board of the RREUSE network of Europe, and at a local level is involved in the National Waste Prevention Network.
