Recycling Update 2019! – Program & Speaker Presentations

Our annual event was brilliant, thanks to our fantastic and generous sponsors, our innovative and bold speakers, and our passionate and motivated attendees!

The amount of content of the event can be overwhelming, so we have offered the speaker presentations here for you in pdf format to reference and keep handy for your own planning purposes. There are several that are still getting uploaded; if you need one sooner, please contact Juliana and I can assist.

Over the next couple of months, we will upload the speaker videos to our NCRA YouTube Channel, so please, stay tuned!
