The 2016 Global Waste Management Symposium [link] is coming up in January in Palm Springs, CA. We first attended the inaugural conference in 2008 and it was a great event (so was the trout fishing on the Colorado River). This bi-annual event is one of the better conferences, in our opinion, that focuses on solid waste disposal and management technologies. Maybe it's our inner engineer-geek coming out, but this is a more technical oriented conference where design methodologies and research are shared, and we like it. If you work in our industry, be sure you check out this event and look us up while you are there.
