Recycle NI represents a number of waste and resource management and recovery organisations within Northern Ireland. The sector contributes hundreds of millions to the local economy and provides thousands of jobs.

Our membership consists of conscientious business owners who recognise the many challenges within the waste and resource management industry. We seek to work collaboratively with decision makers and political representatives at all levels to achieve positive change, benefiting the environment and the economy.

We believe that achieving high quality recycling outcomes and meeting the requirements of the circular economy is the responsibility of all players in the supply chain and the consumer.
