Recycle Coach, an industry leader in recycling education and communication solutions, announces that its President, Creighton Hooper, has been selected to receive the Jean Clark Recycling Excellence Award at this year’s Association of New Jersey Recyclers (ANJR) Symposium. The award recognizes Hooper’s outstanding contributions to the industry and his unwavering commitment to the vision and values of the ANJR.

Hooper’s career spans over 24 years in the waste management and recycling industry. With a profound understanding of the challenges faced by communities, he has consistently worked towards creating solutions that enhance recycling participation and reduce the environmental footprint of waste. Under his leadership, Recycle Coach has grown to serve more than 1,500 cities across North America and Australia, empowering millions of residents to be better recyclers and better stewards of the environment.

“Creighton’s commitment to ANJR has included many behind-the-scenes activities such as launching our membership directory, modernizing our membership outreach, and building new revenue streams for our not-for-profit association,” says Gary Smalley, ANJR Board President.

Hooper joined ANJR in 2018 and shortly after that, became a board member in 2019. In 2020, he took on the role of Vice President of Development, helping to build ANJR’s membership base and dedicating himself to identifying and meeting the needs of the recycling community. This recognition is a testament to his outstanding contributions and the positive change he continues to bring to the industry at large. The entire team at Recycle Coach congratulates him on this well-deserved honor.
