The Louisiana Recycling Coalition is a membership based network of individuals and representatives from government, industry, and non-profit entities that support environmental stewardship through materials reduction, reuse, and recycling in Louisiana. The Louisiana Recycling Coalition provides advocacy, information, technical support, networking, and educational opportunities for and about recycling in partnership with local, state, regional and national organizations.
