New in 2017, the Iowa Recycling and Solid Waste Management Conference is

offering student scholarships to those interested in attending the conference

and learning more about the solid waste, recycling and sustainability industries.

The conference is an event where individuals working in the solid waste and

recycling industry meet to learn how to protect ground water, improve operations,

collect, process, and market recyclable materials,share best practices with

message outreach, and discuss solid waste and recycling policies that affect

our communities and occupational safety practices. 

It attracts a variety of individual occupations from policy makers, engineers, planners, scientists, managers, marketing, and other environmental science fields. 

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship to attend one or more days  of the conference, October 2-4, 2017  in Iowa City/Coralville, please fill out the application
