Held concurrently with the exposition, the Canadian Waste & Recycling Expo offers a platform for networking at industry and association events and education in its highly successful seminar program. The latest technology and legislation for the waste and recycling industry will be presented by experts and leaders from across Canada during the association sponsored seminar program. The program will contain 20 distinct educational sessions in a variety of formats that will cover a wide range of topics from compost markets, hazardous waste compliance, disposal and recycling trends to transfer stations and discussions surrounding the exportation of waste to the U.S. Sponsoring organizations include: British Columbia Environment Industry Association, Composting Council of Canada, Ontario Waste Management Association, SWANA – BC Pacific Chapter, Recycling Council of Alberta, Recycling Council of British Columbia and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.

Members from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities who participate on FCM’s Green Municipal Fund will discuss how can municipalities take their waste diversion efforts to the next level considering important factors such as location, size, public policy, infrastructure, and civic engagement on increasing waste diversion.
