NRRA Presents New Hampshire the Beautiful with Exhibitor Hall of Fame Award
EPSOM, NH, May 26, 2016 – The Northeast Resource Recovery Association (NRRA) recognized New Hampshire the Beautiful (NHtB) for its strong support by inducting NHtB into its Hall of Fame. The award was presented at NRRA’s 35th Annual Conference and Expo, held May 16-17, 2016 in Nashua, NH.
NRRA Hall of Fame recipients recognizes both organizations and individuals who have supported NRRA for over ten years. Each recipient receives a plaque to show NRRA’s appreciation.
“We are successful because of great organizations like New Hampshire the Beautiful,” said Michael Durfor, Executive Director, NRRA. “Without their cooperation and support the recycling efforts in the Northeast would be seriously hampered.”
New Hampshire the Beautiful has provided over $2.5 million in recycling grants for New Hampshire facilities to purchase transfer station signs, establish anti-litter programs and receive technical assistance for recycling programs. NHtB represents a voluntarily-funded alternative to expensive legislation intended to achieve the same end results. New Hampshire the Beautiful, Inc. not only supports NRRA by exhibiting each year at the conference and expo but it also supports the NRRA School Education Program (the Club).
