Every year Resource Recycling hosts the Resource Recycling Conference in New Orleans.

Conscious Container has been invited to present on a panel to share innovative and insightful practices and data across sustainability, refillables, reuse, and recycling infrastructures.

As Conscious Container plans for the expansion of our refillable collection and bottle washing operations, this invitation allows us to bring our circular economy solution to a national audience.

The Resource Recycling Conference and Trade Show—in partnership with the The Recycling Partnership, Association of Plastic Recyclers, and National Recycling Coalition—is the must-attend conference for the recycling industry’s most influential policy leaders, CEOs, and government officials.

The conference, now entering its 10th year, is an opportunity to network with clients, prospective partners, vendors, and top materials management decision-makers all in one location.

The conference’s lineup of educational sessions will offer attendees the latest on materials, processing trends, and tactics to boost diversion rates, legislative talking points, market analysis, and much more.

Conscious Container will be presenting 3:30 – 5:00 P.M. | Grand Ballroom C
Concurrent D: The Power of Looking Upstream (Organized by the National Recycling Coalition)
Communities can make huge strides in waste diversion and minimization by working with local manufacturers and other large commercial generators to take meaningful materials management steps in factories and elsewhere. Experts dig into key best practices.
