The Recycling Today Media Group, the publisher of Recycling Today, has notified attendees, exhibitors, sponsors and speakers that it has decided to cancel the 2021 MRF Operations Forum and Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference, which were scheduled for Oct. 19 and Oct. 20-21, respectively, in Chicago at the Marriott Marquis. We will instead transition to online events, with additional details to be forthcoming. 

The Recycling Today Media Group has been committed to delivering the industry’s leading conferences and events for more than 20 years. We take pride in the quality education and networking we’ve been able to deliver to our industries.

Therefore, with the integrity of our events and the well-being of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and staff in mind, we have made the decision to cancel our in-person MRF Operations Forum and Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference this year.

Regretfully, the imposition of corporate travel restrictions since Labor Day and increased concern about the spread of the COVID delta variant creates a situation where we know attendance will be significantly affected. While that has not happened to date, we know it’s coming and that it will significantly decrease the event’s value. We respect that, and our customers, so we’ve had to make this very hard decision.

While we are eager to connect with our industry once again, and we know many of you are as well, we are looking forward to doing so when we can safely deliver the same standard of events and networking opportunities you’ve grown accustomed to.

Individuals who already registered for one or both of these events have two options regarding their current registration(s):

  • Do nothing, and we will honor your registration for 2022 MRF Operations Forum and Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference taking place Oct. 18-20, 2022, at the Marriott Marquis Chicago.
  • Reach out to our Conferences team at conference@gie.net by Oct.19, 2021, for a full refund.

Additionally, plans are underway to share the insights of our expert speakers and to explore the session topics we had planned to address in person. We will announce those full details soon.
