Recycling Today Media Group releases webinar series schedule

The free online event combines programming from our MRF Operations Forum and Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference.

October 1, 2021

The Recycling Today Media Group has transitioned to an online format for our MRF Operations Forum and Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference (PPRC), which were originally scheduled for Oct. 19 and Oct. 20-21, respectively, in Chicago. The change was the result of COVID-19 concerns and corporate travel restrictions that remain in place as a result. 

Instead, the Recycling Today Media Group, publisher of Recycling Today, has organized a webinar series over the span of two weeks to deliver the same quality of education you’d find at our Chicago event. 

All registrants will receive access to both events, free of charge. Attendees can tune in in real-time or view recordings of sessions when it's more convenient. Our event app allows attendees to submit questions to the speakers using the chat function that they will be able to address even after their particular session has aired. 

Those interested in registering can do so here. Those who registered for the events in Chicago will be automatically registered for the webinar series and will receive log in instructions in the coming weeks.
