The Curbside Value Partnership (CVP), a national recycling nonprofit formed in 2003, has changed its name to The Recycling Partnership. According to the organization, the change reflects its expanding role within the industry and reduces confusion between the organization and its grant and technical assistance project, The Recycling Partnership.
Megan Daum, chairman of The Recycling Partnership board of directors and vice president of sustainability at the Can Manufacturer’s Institute, says, “CVP has worked hard for more than a decade to build trust with communities across the country. The board of directors is very proud of our organization’s longstanding commitment to measurably improving recycling rates. The addition of The Recycling Partnership to CVP last July was a natural fit to our evolving approach; this name change further echoes our organizational growth and systems-based approach developed over the past 12 months.”
