With a Resource Conservation Challenge grant from EPA New England, NERC worked with two large New England–based businesses, with satellite offices elsewhere in the Northeast, to assist them with further developing their recycling programs. This work included providing direct technical assistance, site visits, staff trainings, recycling program development, troubleshooting, assistance with monitoring progress, and providing outreach and promotion of results. A case study was written on the work and progress with St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center’s (Lewiston, Maine) recycling program and is available on the NERC website at
Partner: St Mary's Regional Center (Maine).
