TRI-CED TOUR AND BOARD MEETING, AUGUST 22
For the past 25 years, non-profit Tri-CED has been recycling urban household waste and yard debris and managing a buy-back recycling center under contracts with the Cities of Union City and Hayward. The direct benefits to the community and the culture of Tri-CED’s recycling activities are enhanced by employment and job training opportunities for low-income residents of the community.
The tour starts at 4pm at Tri-CED in Union City and the Dinner/Board Meeting is at 6pm at the City of Fremont Development Services Center, Niles Conference Room. Registrants do not need to attend both, but NCRA staff will follow-up with attendees to determine attendance at Meeting/Dinner. Register
Note: Due to the CRRA Conference in mid-August, the monthly meeting is one week later then usual.
Sunday, September 15, 11am – 3pm, at East Bay Regional Parks’ Lake Temescal Streamside Picnic Area, 6502 Broadway Terrace, Oakland, CA. Directions
Join us for a day of BBQ, lawn games, networking, frisbee and more! Family, kids, friends and dogs welcome!
The event is free to members – NCRA will provide all food and drink! Non-members are encouraged to chip in $5; no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
RSVP by 9/10/19.
Need a ride? We can help, just let us know.

Our annual event was brilliant, thanks to our fantastic and generous sponsors, our innovative and bold speakers, and our passionate and motivated attendees!
The amount of content of the event can be overwhelming, so we have offered the speaker presentations here for you in pdf format to reference and keep handy for your own planning purposes. There are several that are still getting uploaded; if you need one sooner, please contact Juliana and I can assist.

The Devil We Know Film and Panel Discussion, The New Parkway Oakland, Thursday, 3/21/19, 6:15-8:30pm
From cosmetics to ski wax, frying pans to waterproof jackets, take-out foodware to stain-resistant fabrics, Teflon-like chemicals are found in hundreds of consumer products — and now in the blood of nearly every American. We invite you to learn more about these chemicals so you can protect yourself and your family, and take action to demand protective policies and safer products. The Devil We Know is a documentary that was a favorite at the Sundance Film Festival last year.
