NWRA Announces Schedule Change for WasteExpo 2021

Arlington, VA – The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) announced that it will not hold its Awards Breakfast, President’s Reception and Services Board of Governors meeting that were scheduled to take place at WasteExpo 2021, North America’s largest waste and recycling trade show. The 2021 award winners will be celebrated in person at a later date and online via a series of written profiles. The Services Board of Governors will meet virtually on May 5. All other Association meetings are still scheduled to take place during WasteExpo unless otherwise noted.

NWRA is still partnering with Waste360 to provide top-notch and informative education sessions, which will take place over three days. Two notable sessions are the CEO interview where NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith will sit down with Waste Connections President and CEO Worthing Jackman to discuss leadership, business insights, industry issues and more, and the Waste & Recycling Industry Employment Outlook, sponsored by the NWRA Women’s Council, where the industry’s most influential human resource leaders will come together to share their collective knowledge on topics such as talent acquisition, workforce development, employee retention, diversity and inclusion, working amid COVID-19 and more.

Also, WasteExpo’s Spotlight Sessions are back and are free and open to all. You will hear from acclaimed author Adam Minter and more. You can see the full lineup here.

“We are looking forward to seeing the exhibitors showcasing their products and solutions and reconnecting with the industry safely after a challenging year,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith.

Additionally, the Healthcare Waste Conference will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday and focus on the regulatory, legislative and technical issues that affect the healthcare waste industry. Also taking place on Wednesday is NWRA’s Super Safety Session where industry safety experts will discuss workplace and transportation safety best practices, legislation and regulations, what steps you can take to enhance your safety efforts and more.
