MRF Operations Forum

This forum is unlike any other! Designed especially for those seeking to optimize the operations of their plants, the forum will provide unique insights.

Processing plants for single-stream, dual-stream, mixed waste and C&D materials are complex. They require significant capital investment and incur large ongoing operating costs. Managing these investments to ensure maximum recovery, purity, throughput and return-on-investment is challenging.

Until now there has been no forum for plant operators to learn from one another while gaining key insights from a faculty with decades of experience in plant optimization.

Who Should Attend?
Plant managers, maintenance managers, regional managers, owners, consultants, engineers, government officials, equipment suppliers and anyone else interested in better understanding plant operations and technology.

What Will You Learn?
How artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics work; ways you can apply AI at your plant; optimizing plants to improve throughput, quality and uptime; shared problems other plant operators face; differences between managing and leading employees; lessons and experiences from retrofits; and much, much more.

The MRF Operations Forum will take place in Chicago at the centrally located Marriott Chicago Downtown prior to the Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference (PPRC).

Registration rates are designed to be cost-effective, with special discounts for multiple attendees. Those who attend the forum and the PPRC benefit from even greater discounts.

With a program designed for plant operators and a focus on take-away value, make plans to attend today!


"The MRF operator forum has provided us invaluable insights, and best practices from industry leading equipment manufactures and MRF operators throughout the country. This forum has contributed to the success of our single stream facility and development of our staff."

– Bryce Stalcup, Facility Manager (Waste Commission of Scott County)
