Call For Papers Now Closed

Many of you are very familiar with the long track record and unique format of Recycling Update, the one-day conference produced annually by the Northern California Recycling Association since 1995. For the third time since its inception, NCRA has decided to create part of the 2023 program using a call for papers. Original presentations on leading edge waste reduction, equity and environmental justice programs will be favored for inclusion on the program. All papers selected will need to be adapted into presentations not exceeding 10 minutes; your presentation will typically reach over 400 attendees – no panels or breakouts.

The call for papers is now open! it closes on November 23 at midnight.
