An important task of EPA's resource recovery program is to identify and promote methods to recycle the valuable materials that we now throw away. The following directory testifies to the strength of citizen interest and participation in resource conservation. All the recycling projects listed, whether citizen, municipal, or industrial, serve as points of contact between individuals who wish to conserve resources and manufacturers who can reuse them as raw materials. The National Recycling Project Directory is the result of many months of information gathering. Many centers which are listed will have ceased to function by the time of publication; many more will have come into being. Materials accepted, contact persons, addresses, and phone numbers will have changed. A tear-off sheet is provided in the back of the book. It is hoped that concerned citizens will use it to inform us of any changes they have found. A second edition of this directory is planned for the spring of 1974 to incorporate these changes. The directory is organized by state and city in alphabetical order.
