About WSRA

The Washington State Recycling Association (WSRA) was formed in 1976 to support the fledgling recycling industry and promote recycling in the state of Washington. WSRA provides a forum for discussing recycling issues at a level that reflects the deep pool of membership expertise. Our nonprofit 501(c)6 allows us to influence government policy. We encourage education and growth through newsletters, quarterly meetings, annual conferences and award presentations. WSRA members encompass a diverse group of city, county and state government staff; non-profit organizations; representatives from recycling and solid waste companies; compost processors; green builders; colleges and universities; and private citizens. With over 500 members, WSRA continues to set the industry standard for encouraging sustainable legislative initiatives and awareness.


WSRA provides leadership and education that fosters the expansion, diversity and economic vitality of recycling in support of sustainable resource management.


We envision a world in which the concept of waste no longer exists.
