Thirty-eight years of expertise, program development, research, publishing, and technical assistance have made ILSR’s Waste to Wealth division the leading source of information on recycling and recycling-based community economic development. ILSR staff members have pioneered dramatic changes in the rules and regulations that govern our solid waste management system. We have published groundbreaking research on record-setting recycling efforts and jobs through recycling. We have helped start community-based recycling businesses and industrial parks. ILSR is a co-founder of the National Recycling Coalition (1980) and the GrassRoots Recycling Network (1997).

We are available for presentations, workshops, lectures in a variety of settings, including:

  • lectures at schools,
  • meetings with elected officials,
  • community events and with community organizers,
  • keynote addresses and presentations at conferences,
