WasteExpo 2016’s conference program features a wide range of session topics, offering attendees great opportunities for professional development. Topics vary from automated collections to data security, food waste reduction to new safety technologies and zero waste strategies.

3. Test drive a new Mack LR model truck

Throughout the Expo, you can take part in a number of special events, from the National Waste & Recycling Association Awards Breakfast to a recycling and sustainability tour of the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.
