    If you work in materials management for a non-profit, the state, a municipality or corporate organization, you don't want to miss this event. The 2021 session of the CT General Assembly will have a tremendous impact on materials management policy in the state of Connecticut. Engage with opinion leaders from across the state as they stake their ground.
    The CRC Annual Recycling Conference will be held via Zoom in 2021 due to public health concerns.
