Acampora has been promoted from Show Manager/Sales Director to Waste360 Vice President. He has been with both Waste360 and WasteExpo for 18 years.

Hickey’s contributions have been instrumental in Waste360’s growth and success.
Hickey said, “This new position is a perfect fit for Marc’s skillset and his love for the waste and recycling industry. His keen focus on our customers and the Waste360 team is unmatched, so this role was made for him. Waste360 is in great hands with Marc at the helm.”
