Registration now open for 2020 Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference

The industry’s longest-running trade show and conference is back this October in Chicago to offer unbeatable education and networking opportunities.

CLEVELAND, OhioRecycling Today has announced that registration is now open for the publication’s annual Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference. The conference will take place Oct. 21-23, 2020, in Chicago and will once again be co-located with the MRF Operations Forum, which will take place Oct. 20.

The Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference was created to address the biggest challenges and opportunities facing recycling businesses today. Now more than ever, with growing CPG companies making commitments to use recycled goods, the supply chain needs to work together to develop solutions. The Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference provides attendees with the opportunity to join industry leaders at all stages of the supply chain and have their voices heard when it comes to the most important business issues.

The day before the conference, those interested in better understanding recycling plant operations and technology are invited to attend the MRF Operations Forum. In its fifth year, this forum provides the only opportunity for operators to learn and discuss the ever-changing world of recycling plant optimization

Both events offer discounted registration rates for multiple attendees and for those who attend the PPRC and MRF Operations forum, there are even greater discounts.

“The waste and environmental services industry continues to offer unique growth opportunities. Waste Today’s Corporate Growth Conference has been structured to give today’s professionals the insights they need to capitalize on these changes and opportunities," Jim Keefe, publisher of Waste Today, says. "Additionally, the event provides professionals the unmatched opportunity to meet face to face with their peers to network, learn and build new relationships."
