This invitation-only event is an ideal opportunity for elected officials, government regulators, waste managers, brand owners and retailers.

What will you see and learn?
During these tours you’ll see and hear about leading-edge waste management technologies – from recycling to energy recovery – and better understand how they can co-exist in an environmentally and economically sustainable way.

Attendees will see mechanical systems at work and gain an operational perspective on the handling and management of plastics and other recyclables.
