The conference, now entering its seventh year, is your opportunity to network with clients, prospective partners, vendors and top materials management decision-makers all in one location, saving you precious time and travel expenses. The conference's lineup of education sessions will offer attendees the latest on materials processing trends, tactics to boost diversion rates, legislative talking points, market analysis and much more.
Minnesota's Rep. Ellison to Take Stage at Resource Recycling Conference
Earlier this year, Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn. reintroduced national zero-waste legislation in Congress, and he is now scheduled to lay out his materials diversion thoughts on stage at the 2017 Resource Recycling Conference in Minneapolis. A conference session developed by the National Recycling Coalition and the Recycling Association of Minnesota will explore how recycling is being affected by recent shifts in American politics, and Ellison has been tapped to add his voice to that dialogue. In addition, Minnesota's two U.S. senators - Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken - have indicated they may also be able to join in the conversation. View the full press release here.
