The State of Sustainable Fleets
When it comes to transforming waste and recycling fleets, the industry isn’t sitting idle. Suppliers and fleet managers have been hard at work to improve vehicle management, maintenance, financing and fuel types such as compressed natural gas (CNG), renewable natural gas (RNG) and battery electric. Learn about the current state of these sustainable fleets and what trends will drive fleets forward into the future.
8:30 AM - 9:45 AM
Association & Foundation Leaders Roundtable
Spotlight Session: Association & Foundation Leaders Roundtable–Building a Stronger Industry Through Collaboration
The solid waste and recycling industry is supported by key associations, including the National Waste & Recycling Association, the Solid Waste Association of North America, the Environmental Research & Education Foundation and the Construction and Demolition Recycling Association. Each organization has its own mission and efforts, but through the power of collaboration, the industry can become stronger in the areas of safety, workforce, advocacy, research and education and more. Join this engaging roundtable to learn more about these associations’ roles in the industry, how your company can benefit from their work and how they are working both together and independently to support the members of the industry.

NothingWasted! -- Call to Action: Working Group Addressing Hard-to-Recover Materials
1:00 PM - 2:15 PM
The urgency to develop circular solutions is hitting critical mass, and we have a rare opportunity to receive input and collaborate across all stakeholders within the waste value chain. The focus will be to develop new and/or expand on existing solutions for hard-to-recover materials such as film, cartons, glass and small format plastics.
This will be a different format than a panel or discussion, as we’re inviting you to start the conversations and engage with others. So, come and share your:
- Challenges (what’s giving you concern?)
- Questions (what are our goals? are there end markets and where?)
- Expertise (best practices; how to get funding; how can we sort that?)
- Ideas (other ways to approaching the challenge; applicable technology used in other industries)
- And More…
In this fully interactive working group format, let’s continue the momentum toward circular solutions together! See you there.
