The Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference evolved out of our original event, the Paper Recycling Conference, which debuted in 2000. This evolution was precipitated by changes that occurred throughout the recycling industry during the last decade.

The Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference has grown to become the premier meeting place for recycling industry professionals. Our delegate base includes individuals and companies involved in recovering, processing, marketing and trading recovered materials, as well as individuals representing businesses that rely upon these raw materials as furnish for their production or products.

Despite the name of our event, our program covers a range of recyclable materials, including electronics and metals, as well as a range of topics ranging from legislation to operations. The conference commonly examines factors shaping the recycling industry now and in the years to come.

As the premier event serving the industry, the Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference attracts the most influential businesses and decision-makers affiliated with the recycling industry.

The Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference brings together suppliers, consumers, equipment vendors, state and local recycling officials and other professionals allied with the industry. The conference is an important forum where attendees can network with industry colleagues, share opportunities, identify issues and discuss strategies to create growth.

Our alliances with the PSI (Paper Stock Industries) Chapter of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries and with SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association facilitate programming that best meets the needs of the current recycling marketplace.

In addition to our comprehensive educational programming, the conference also features an exhibit hall filled with equipment and service providers to the recycling industry. These companies can assist conference attendees by providing the latest products and technology designed to improve production efficiencies or to facilitate the buying and selling of recovered materials.

Make plans to attend the industry’s original recycling conference: The Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference. Produced by the Recycling Today Media Group, the Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference is backed by a team of individuals that has more than 50 years of experience in the recycling industry—experience you can count on to deliver a quality event.

We hope to see you in Chicago, Oct. 19 - 21, at the Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference.
