Since 1996, the Northern California Recycling Association (NCRA) has been conducting the Recycling Update - a popular annual one day conferences that focus on the best of what's "new and different". This year - the 18th, the Update has been expanded to include Zero Waste International Alliance's (ZWIA) 8th International Dialog. Calling the two-day conference the Zero Waste Update, we have also added a week of activities - Zero Waste Week - tours, receptions, speaking engagements and meetings.
Attendees will include discard management and recycling professionals, service providers and activists as well as local, regional, state and national elected officials and policy-makers and members of the media covering Sustainability, Zero Waste, Reuse, Recycling, Composting and EPR. The Ecology Center is co-sponsoring this series.
