Kate Krebs, executive director of the Washington-based National Recycling Coalition (NRC) has resigned to pursue other opportunities. Anjia Nicolaidis and Ed Skernolis will serve as co-executive directors while the coalition’s leadership searches for a replacement.

“I have accomplished what I set out to do when I came to the coalition in 2000 — to strategically advance recycling, which then enhances a sustainable materials economy in North America,” Krebs said in a press release. “It’s been especially rewarding to work with such a passionate and committed group of people from across our country all dedicated to advancing recycling.”
