Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference celebrates 20 years

The longest-running conference and trade show in the paper and plastics recycling industries will continue its tradition in Chicago

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Recycling Today has announced that registration is now open for the publication’s 20th annual Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference. The conference will take place Oct. 23-25, 2019, in Chicago and will be co-located with the MRF Operations Forum, which will take place Oct. 22.

The Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference was created to address the biggest challenges and opportunities facing recycling businesses today. It also provides attendees with the opportunity to join industry leaders in shaping the future of the industry by discussing real 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. Now in its fourth year, the forum is the only event specifically dedicated to plant operations – not to policy and markets – and was created to address the growing changes in recycling plant operations.

Registration rates for both events are designed to be cost-effective, with special discounts for multiple attendees. Those who attend both the PPRC and the forum benefit from even greater discounts.

More information on the conference and forum, including how to register, can be found on the events’ websites. Attendees who register by Aug. 15 will receive early bird pricing.

Companies interested in sponsoring either event should contact their sales representatives. The Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference exhibit hall is almost full! Act fast to reserve your spot today.
