Who We Are

The Arkansas Recycling Coalition (ARC) unites large and small companies, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and individuals in a common effort to promote REDUCE, REUSE, REPURPOSE and RECYCLE as the primary means of SUSTAINABLE waste management in Arkansas. The unique blend of over 200 members promotes a sharing of ideas and understanding of diverse interests and needs.

Where We Have Been

The ARC was formed in 1989 in response to the need for comprehensive information and programs on reduce, reuse,recycle, and waste reduction. The original effort was spearheaded by Ozark Recycling Enterprise, Inc. through a Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation grant.

Where We Are Going

The ARC is committed to assisting members in improving their reduce, reuse, repurpose, and recycle opportunities, recycle skills and techniques through education, special studies, research and the exchange of ideas and technical knowledge. The ARC has pledged to educate the general public and members of government and the business community about the economic and environmental significance of recycling.
