OKRA is a non-profit organization established to improve the business of recycling by providing education and referral services about integrated solid waste management, including reduction, reuse, recycling, and composting. It is designed to serve as a central communication point for exchange among businesses, industries, government entities, public and private organizations, schools, and citizens about recycling.
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, OKRA works to support recycling efforts. 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.
Oklahoma Recycling Conference
The 2018 Oklahoma Recycling Conference will take place on Thursday, Sept. 20 in Stillwater. Click here for 2018 conference information.
Recycling means many things to Oklahomans. Beyond resource conservation and managing solid waste, recycling creates jobs in Oklahoma. 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. Read more here about why we need you and how you can help carry OKRA.
