The Iowa Recycling and Solid Waste Management Conference and Trade Show is seeking presentation abstracts for its 2020 event October 5-7. Hosted by the Iowa Recycling Association (IRA) and Iowa Society of Solid Waste Operations (ISOSWO), the conference is one of the Midwest’s premier events for recycling and solid waste management professionals, providing educational programs, networking, and trade show opportunities. This year’s conference is being held in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Each year, conference curriculum addresses a broad array of issues and provides a balanced program that meets the various skill and interest levels of the conference audience. The conference education sessions are divided into three concurrent tracks:

  • Solid waste management
  • Recycling and education
  • Best practices and professional development

The 2020 Iowa Recycling and Solid Waste Management Conference is monitoring the Covid-19 situation and will be following the recommendations of major public health organizations. Our planning team remains vigilant in these efforts for the health and well-being of our valued attendees, exhibitors and sponsors and for now is continuing ahead with the conference as usual.

Please consider submitting an abstract. Presenting at the Iowa Recycling and Solid Waste Management Conference enhances your professional development, enables you to share with your peers, gains you recognition in the industry, and provides you an opportunity to learn from your colleagues. Submittals are due by July 14, 2020.
