DEADLINE: November 1, 2019.

Presenter Registration Policy:

We ask all oral and  poster presenters  to consider paying the full conference registration fee since we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit and this is our fund raising event for promoting the topic of recycling. Having said that, if a presenter cannot pay the full registration we have established a fee of $127 to cover our direct costs. In the event the speaker is coming in to talk and then leave, we will waive the fee.
