Southern Oregon Master Recyclers in Action (SOMRA) is a group of individuals who have completed the eight week Master Recyclers course offered by the Jackson County Recycling Partnership.
We meet monthly to develop projects and volunteer on issues in our community related to waste reduction and prevention.
We believe achieving Zero Waste requires new approaches to waste management with policies that emphasize waste prevention as opposed to “end of the pipe” waste management. These new approaches require massive changes in the way materials currently flow through society. We’re working to shift the focus from simply recycling to reducing waste at its source.
