Overview of CoRR Programs
Our Plan to Eliminate the Concept of Waste in NYC and Beyond
In the current system, 2,400 tons per day of the following materials is exported from New York City’s accommodation, food service, and retail sectors and sent to distant landfills. CoRR’s programs close the loop on paper, metal, plastic, and glass, reduce food waste, and locally recover the energy in wasted food, powering the city with green energy. The following diagram depicts our programs to transform food and paper waste into assets, benefitting New York City and other municipalities nationwide..
Recycle paper cups and foodservice packaging into valuable, high-quality materials.
Achieve 100% recyclable wholesale transfer packaging, at world’s largest distribution center, setting the standard throughout the world.
Develop a conceptual plan for a local, reliable, environmentally-sound, and economical commercial food waste recovery
infrastructure that will provide energy and nutrient-rich soil to New York City.
Exponentially increase recycling of commercial carpet discarded in the New York City Metro Region through facilitating expansion of existing local recycling facilities, including the manufacture of products from carpet discards.
Increase beverage container recycling for manufacture into new products.
Increase use of reusable bags and readily recyclable single-use bags when one is needed.
