The Coast Waste Management Association would like to invite you to join us for our annual conference October 24th - 26th, 2012 in Victoria, BC.

Our conference theme, “EPR - The (R)Evolution continues” will bring together waste and recycling professionals to explore leading edge topics that affect the waste management and recycling sector today. Joining us are two renowned professionals; Victor Bell, President of EPI-Global Environmental Packaging & Eric Lombardi, Executive Director of Eco Cycle, to share their perspectives on Extended Producer Responsibility and how we manage our waste.

Some of the topics being addressed include; Improving the consultation process, Overcoming consumer confusion, What happens to stewarded products after they are collected?, Does EPR really provide all the claimed benefits?, Development of curbside organics programs, Challenges depots face as more EPR products are added. A Packaging and Printed Paper EPR public consultation is being planned for Friday afternoon.

Tours of curbside organics processing, cruise ship waste management, Hartland landfill and a wood waste facility are being offered, along with plenty of excellent business opportunities to network with delegates. Many of the industry’s largest waste and recycling organizations will be in attendance as delegates and tradeshow participants.
