Sixth Annual Conference on Solid Waste Management in Southern New England

The Future is Here – New Technologies on the Cutting Edge and Industry Perspectives

The sixth annual EBC “Talking Trash” conference for Southern New England will provide attendees with the opportunity to hear from key industry stakeholders. Issues to be discussed include the impending shortfall of disposal capacity anticipated to take place in the region over the next five years, the challenges and sustainability of municipal recycling programs, and developments with the next MASS DEP Solid Waste Master Planning effort to address the state’s management of the solid waste generated.
