Boat Rocker – Bag It Movie Monster

NCRA is a 501(c)6 non-profit trade organization of recycling businesses, community groups, municipalities and individuals. Our mission is to promote 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.

Founded in 1978, the majority of our members are located in Northern California. Boat rockers, we are active locally, regionally, state-wide and nationally depending on what needs to be done.

Please peruse our website and let us know what you think. Though designed to facilitate our effectiveness as a trade group, it is also chock full of information. It will evolve over time and would greatly benefit from your input.
