The Regional Environmental Council (REC) was formed in 1971 as Worcester residents fought an effort to site a landfill in the city’s largest public green space, Green Hill Park. Originally focused on traditional environmental issues, REC later decided to concentrate on the environmental issues affecting low-income urban communities, families, immigrants/refugees, and at-risk teens.

REC (Regional Environmental Council) began in Worcester in 1971.  The organization came into existence with the introduction of a lawsuit against the City of Worcester, which at the time was planning to site a landfill in Greenhill Park.
