About the Alabama Environmental Council
Alabama Environmental Council (AEC) was founded in 1967 as an environmental advocacy organization working to protect Alabama’s wilderness areas and achieved great success. In addition, the trailblazing organization helped start many recycling programs throughout the state beginning in 1973 and provided a community recycling center in the city of Birmingham.

Today the organization focuses on natural resource conservation as a vital part of protecting the natural environment for a greener, cleaner and healthier Alabama. They are deeply involved in collaborations with various like-minded organizations and AL communities to provide unique opportunities for recycling and disposal of household hazardous waste.

AEC is preparing to launch two new programs during Fall 2019 - 2020: Master Conservationist of AL and a virtual resource tool for waste reduction - reduce, reuse, recycle.
