“If I had to summarize my experience at the 2017 WSRA Annual Conference and Trade Show with one word it would be discovery. I gained valuable insights into the industries of recycling, composting, landfills, and waste streams throughout the breakout sessions focusing on successes, mistakes, best practices, and innovative strategies. I reaped many benefits during the conference: learning industry hot topics, networking with individuals from the private and public sectors, as well as planning for the future of the WSRA during the plenary session. I am tremendously grateful for the opportunity to attend the WSRA as a student guest. I was particularly overjoyed by the compassion and openness the attendees demonstrated towards the student guests. I plan to continue a relationship with the WRSA because I envision great success for the organization and its committed members.”
