The Northern California Recycling Association (NCRA) is an association
of recycling businesses, community groups, municipalities, and
individuals committed to promoting, expanding, and institutionalizing
recycling. Founded in 1978, NCRA is a nonprofit trade organization for
recyclers with more than 200 members, the majority of whom are located
in Northern California. NCRA promotes waste reduction, reuse,
salvaging, recycling, and composting as vital tools for resource and
energy conservation, and as cost-effective, environmentally sound
methods of disposing of discarded materials.
NCRA is holding its annual conference on March 27 and is offering
grants and scholarships to students interested in attending.

Here's a snippet:
A number of recent events has moved recycling from back to front page
news here in California. A growing concern for greenhouse gas
emissions has us looking at how much recycling can reduce industrial
pollution; more and more local governments are saying "bye-bye" to
integrated waste management and championing instead zero waste
policies and practices; more and more, inventive people are developing
programs on the local level that deliver less waste and more
recycling. Jerry Powell, publisher of Resource Recycling magazine,
called us the best program of its type in the country. We hope you'll
join us in Oakland on Tuesday, March 27th and go from out-of-touch to
up-to-date in one day.
Recycling Update XII will take place on Tuesday, March 27, 2007 from
8:45am - 4:30pm in downtown Oakland at 1515 Clay Street. Cost for the
whole day is $65 for NCRA members, $80 for non-members. The event
includes a catered lunch.
