    The 2020 Conference program will include expert panel discussions of timely issues in recycling and sustainable approaches to materials management. Plus, CRC's annual legislator panel will round out the day, providing insight on what you need to know to plan for the coming year.  
    The CT Recyclers Conference is the singular event each year where municipalities, state officials, the business community and non-profit organizations in Connecticut come together in one setting to have a dialogue about the best ways to achieve our mutual goal of a 60% recycling rate statewide.
