CCORRN is a partnership between the community, public and private sector that was started in early 2003. Financial support was awarded to Cambridgeshire County Council for its establishment, from DEFRA's Recycling Challenge Fund and Enventure.

CCORRN's goal when incepted was to successfully increase the quantity of community reuse and recycling projects in the County. CCORRN is now a Company Limited by Guarantee with its Directors made up of volunteers from all the sectors involved. One full time staff member is employed as the 'Community Recycling Network Organiser' to carry out the work programme set by the Management Committee.

In the second year 2004, the network continued to build upon the first year's success. This included providing 'Seedcorn' funding for project start ups as well as holding events, workshops and visits to allow the dissemination of knowledge and best practice. By assisting groups in defining/developing and bid writing they were able to secure additional funding to develop and expand their operations.
