Over the past year, the solid waste and recycling industry has continued to face challenges from all directions. This, along with an uncertain future, makes it all the more important to keep ourselves informed on the current state of the industry. This session will provide attendees with the latest information on how markets are being impacted by China’s National Sword, what the future holds for waste capacity in our regions, and what the 5 top priorities are for each of the State’s regulatory offices. You won’t want to miss this one!

Lunch is included with the registration fee.
