The Recycling Update is THE event of the season for Northern California resource management professionals.  RU features 25 experts speaking on the spectrum of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot, as well as numerous networking opportunities, a delicious Zero Waste lunch and plenty of ideas to bring home to your community!

Often referred to as conference “speed dating,” speakers have only 10 minutes (plus a few minutes of Q&A) to let you know about the latest and greatest in waste reduction, high diversion, and Zero Waste. Attendees include municipal staff, service providers, consultants and activists as well as local, regional and state policy-makers and members of the media covering Sustainability, Zero Waste, Reuse, Recycling, Composting and Product Stewardship.







This year, as part of Zero Waste Week, we are also hosting the NATIONAL ZERO WASTE CONFERENCE in collaboration with the National Recycling Coalition. An exciting expanded program will be offered, spanning multiple days and locations plus training sessions and tours! Register today!
