The State of Texas Alliance for Recycling’s (STAR) Mission is to advance recycling through partnerships, education, and advocacy for the benefit of Texas. STAR is a 501-C3 non-profit advocacy organization whose membership has over 230 people representing government, private industry, educational, and not-for-profit organizations that have an interest in advancing recycling in Texas. STAR is governed by its Mission, bylaws, and Guiding Principles.
The Board of Directors seeks to establish appropriate actions for the organization in fulfilling its Mission by periodically updating the Strategic Plan. STAR’s previous Strategic Plan was created in 2008 and updated in 2012 and 2016. The 2016 Strategic Plan sought to capture the momentum built by the successful Texas Recycling Data Initiative (2015), and the subsequent adoption of HB 2763 that directed the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to conduct the 2017 Study on the Economic Impacts of Recycling (SEIR).
STAR’s 2020 Strategic Plan continues to build upon previous efforts and the adoption of SB 649 that directs the TCEQ and Governor’s Office of Economic Development to create a Texas Recycling Market Development Plan by 2021.
