Indiana Recycling Coalition

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Recycling Coalition’s (IRC) recent appointment of Allyson Mitchell as Executive Director opens new avenues for expansion. Mitchell assumed her role as Executive Director of the IRC on March 5th, succeeding Carey Hamilton. Mitchell has twelve years of experience in sustainability, a law degree, work experience in non-profit and local government, higher education, corporations, and small business consulting. Mitchell is well-suited to strategically guide the organization forward.

Mitchell’s background, which includes grant acquisition and administration, as well as her extensive community connections give her a wealth of experience as IRC’s fourth Executive Director.  Mitchell aspires to reach far beyond the city of Indianapolis to engage with industry partners and communities across the state and hopes to emphasize the importance of actions beyond recycling, including reusing and reducing waste.

Mitchell’s vision for IRC encompasses the entire state, while emphasizing the global impact of recycling and other actions.  Mitchell wants people to know that resource efficiency is broader than just recycling and to empower them with information that helps them make the best decision at every level – the individual consumer, the business owner, and the community leader. The actions they all take, when multiplied by many, can make a big difference. “Simple daily choices can have global impact,” says Mitchell.

As Earth Day approaches on April 22nd, Mitchell will be stationed at a booth for Earth Day Indiana, a festival in downtown Indianapolis to educate residents on waste reduction, reuse, composting, and recycling activities in Indiana.  Mitchell urges all Hoosiers to get involved in local Earth Day initiatives, as well as being actively involved in reducing, reusing, and recycling waste.



The Indiana Recycling Coalition (IRC) is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization formed in 1989 to support  waste reduction, reuse, composting and recycling activities in Indiana. The IRC’s members include state and local governments, business, industry, not-for-profits and individuals. The IRC hosts its annual conference in June 2018.
