The Association of Ohio Recyclers (AOR) is a dynamic 501(c)(6) nonprofit trade association established in 1989 with a clear mission: to champion waste reduction, reuse, and recycling initiatives across Ohio. Uniting stakeholders from diverse sectors, AOR operates on a nonpolitical and nonpartisan basis, fostering collaboration and innovation in sustainable materials management.


At the heart of AOR's operations lies its dedicated Board of Directors, elected by the membership, entrusted with driving forward the organization's Strategic Plan. This plan serves as a roadmap, guiding the implementation of AOR's mission, vision, programs, projects, and activities.


AOR takes pride in its commitment to promoting sustainable materials management practices, emphasizing the importance of waste reduction, reuse, recycling, and composting of marketable materials to prevent them from entering the waste stream. By prioritizing these principles, AOR actively contributes to building a greener, more resilient Ohio.


Each year, AOR hosts a flagship event: a professional conference that serves as a platform for members and like-minded individuals to exchange best management practices, share insights, and forge partnerships. Additionally, the annual members meeting provides a vital forum for discussing progress, fostering dialogue, and engaging in strategic planning to further advance AOR's mission.
