    2020 FALL CONFERENCE CANCELED

    After careful consultation with our host hotel regarding the health and safety of our members, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Fall Conference.

    With increased concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event, but we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.

    Note that current training classes are still being held.  We are also offering on-site training for Landfill and Transfer Station Operation Specialists.
