2023 MRN/SWANA MA Conference is in the books: This year’s conference, held June 12, exceeded all expectations with a near-record number of attendees --- 25% higher than last year! The program was a packed lineup featuring the hottest – and some mildly hot – topics relevant to both the recycling and solid waste industries. Throughout the day, there was also plenty of opportunity to visit and chat with our 22 vendors, and to do that all-important networking with our peers. Read the full recap here.

A special thanks to our sponsors and exhibitors for supporting the conference and our presenters for sharing their expertise and visions for the future.
