Patty Moore has been involved in the field of recycling since 1983 when she became fascinated with the commonality, variety, and value of waste while working at the Wilton Recycling Center in Wilton, NH. She was the principal author of How to Implement a Plastics Recycling Program (also known as The Idiot Book of Plastic Recycling), published by the Council for Solid Waste Solutions in 1991. Since then, she has not once looked back in her efforts to advance the number and type of materials collected for recycling on both a local and global scale. Ms. Moore was a participant in a Department of Commerce, Plastics Trade and Investment Mission to China in 1996 and countinues to have a strong interest and understanding of the critical role played by China and other developing nations in domestic recycling efforts.
Under her leadership, Moore Recycling Associates has had a huge impact on current recycling systems while managing to maintain a small staff of professionals.
