OKRA (the Oklahoma Recycling Association) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to support communities, governments, and individuals in recycling. We provide a forum for networking, encourage local end-markets, and work to create a unified voice for Oklahoma Recyclers. We have strong partnerships with the state DEQ, Keep Oklahoma Beautiful, The Metropolitan Environmental Trust, and EPA.
Recycling means many things to Oklahomans. Beyond resource conservation and managing solid waste, recycling creates jobs in Oklahoma. Recent studies show that there are more than 5,000 jobs in Oklahoma created from recycling related processes. These jobs represent over 300 million dollars in payroll each year. Recycling is good for the Earth AND good for the economy of Oklahoma.
Why We Need You!
OKRA is the organized voice for Oklahoma recyclers. We want to represent your voice to political leaders. We are a center point for networking and resource sharing. We help the National Recycling Coalition hear from Oklahomans and make national policy that will benefit Oklahoma recyclers.
You Can Help Carry – OKRA!
