Welcome to the new website for the Puerto Rico Recycling Partnership. We are currently working on adding more information to this site. Stay tuned for more updates soon!
The PRRP was formed early in 2010 by the Puerto Rican government and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to promote materials source reduction, clean composting, reuse, and recycling through a working partnership including government (at all levels), non-profit organizations, citizens, environmental groups, and the private sector. The PRRP is designing programs, educating the public, and ensuring effective implementation. It is composed of several teams: Construction & Demolition Debris; Education & Outreach; Electronics Recycling; Glass, Metal & Plastic Containers; Government Relations; Organics; Paper; Scrap Metal; and Special Wastes.
To accelerate adoption of sustainable waste management (sustainable materials management, or SMM) options and to prompt more local ownership of the PRRP, it has organized its efforts around eight core teams focused primarily on commodities (specific components of the discard stream in Puerto Rico).
