The recycling nonprofit Northeast Resource Recovery Association (NRRA) will be holding its annual Recycling Conference & Expo on Monday, May 16 and Tuesday, May 17, 2022.  For over forty years, NRRA’s Recycling Conference & Expo has been a premier conference focused exclusively on municipal recycling and waste reduction in the Northeast. This year’s theme, “What’s Next: Rethinking Resource Recovery” emphasizes the need for communities to rethink the future of solid waste and waste reduction and reset following the pandemic and China’s National Sword policy.

Each year, hundreds of attendees join from across the recycling and waste management industry, including leaders and decisionmakers from municipal recycling centers and transfer stations, state, city, and town governments, and business and industry. This year’s conference will be held in person again!  The conference will take place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester Downtown Hotel in Manchester, NH for two full days with some workshops available remotely via live stream.

The conference agenda features over a dozen workshops, including:

  • Landfill 101: An Introduction to Burying Trash
  • Solar Panel Recycling and a Circular Economy
  • Composting in VT and NH: Exemplar and Regulatory Updates
  • Federal Funding Programs for Recycling Operations
  • Affecting Recycling and Reuse Change in Your Town

Registration is now open.  The conference will count toward NHDES continuing education credits for each hour attended live and certificates of attendance will be awarded.
