What's Going On?

Event: AOR 2014 Sustainable Oregon Conference & Trade Show 
June 19- 21, 2014
The LaSells Stewart Center, Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon

The Association of Oregon Recyclers (AOR) 2014 Sustainable Oregon Conference & Trade Show - held at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon - is a three-day, interactive learning experience featuring leading-edge educational sessions, workshops, local and national experts and speakers, facility tours, valuable networking opportunities, and an awards program to celebrate the achievements of Oregon’s recycling, reuse, and waste reduction businesses and leaders. The conference also provides unmatched networking opportunities in one location. This is the time and place each year that recycling professionals from Oregon and around the northwest gather to talk all things recycling, composting and sustainable materials management.  Our goal is for attendees to take this time to develop and deepen working relationships with peers in the region.
