What Does CTRA Do?

Community Assistance

CTRA provides technical assistance to communities or groups interested in recycling. It serves as a their liaison between the public and private sector by negotiating contracts with haulers and end-market at competitive prices. The collection, transport and sale of recyclables, especially for smaller communities and remote areas, was coordinated by CTRA through their contractors. The CTRA also helps community recycling programs to effectively increase the amount and quality of collected recycled materials as well as maximize the efforts of those already recycling. Quality control at the cooperative level can impact the processor or the mill's willingness to negotiate contracts. CTRA charges no membership dues or fees; the only charge is a 10% administrative fee on all recyclable sales.
