Welcome to the world of waste management, recycling and public works. Waste & Recycling Expo Canada is a trade show that provides a platform to analyze various products and services, build relationships and network. Co-located with the Municipal Equipment Expo Canada and the Canadian Waste to Resource Conference, this multi-industry event is Canada’s ONLY show serving the waste, recycling and public works markets – all under one roof! Our 18th edition is this year, November 4-5, 2015 at Palais des Congres de Montreal, Montreal QC, Canada.
Did you know:
- In a lifetime, the average North American will throw away 600 times his or her adult weight in garbage
- 70% of landfilled waste could be either reused or recycled
- The EPA estimates that 75% of the American waste stream is recyclable, but we only recycle about 30% of it
- Across Canada it costs more than $1.5 billion per year to dispose of garbage
- Waste management in Canada has grown into an $ 8 billion industry
Interesting stuff, huh? Shocking, even? These figures tell the truth of the matter – even with continuous improvements in waste management technology and recycling program awareness in the last 10 years, we still have a long way to go towards major change!
The show provides opportunities to network with industry professionals, attend educational seminars, and discover the latest trends in the waste, recycling and public works industries.
