Member Programs & Services

This committee plans WSRA’s Washington Recycles Every Day (WRED) event series. This committee also creates programs that educate, inform, and stimulate membership professional development – making WSRA the primary learning and knowledge source for recycling professionals in Washington.


The WSRA Policy Forum is an annual event hosted by the WSRA Policy Committee that offers a glimpse into what recycling and reuse related bills will be topics of discussion for the upcoming legislative session. The 2022 WSRA Policy Forum offers a space for WSRA members to hear directly from state legislators, Washington Department of Ecology, and others about their recycling and reuse priorities as well as an opportunity to hear from membership on the potential impacts to their business or organization. The WSRA Policy Forum encourages WSRA members to have candid dialogue with one another about upcoming policy priorities and current policy implementation impacts to their business or organization. All WSRA members are invited to attend the Policy Forum to receive unique insights into the upcoming legislative session as a benefit of being a WSRA member!

Equity Committee

WSRA has developed a equity committee that will serve as a new and permanent  branch of the organization. We are excited to deploy a dedicated team to work in partnership with members, volunteers, and the Board to critically examine all aspects of WSRA’s programs through an equity lens.
