NRRA is pleased to announce that the Keynote Speaker for our 38th Annual Northeast Recycling Conference & Expo is Katherine Shayne.

Katherine is the Co-founder and CEO of Can I Recycle This, Inc., a company using AI to help citizens understand the end-of-life of their products through social media and technology. She received her Master’s Degree in Environmental Engineering from the University of Georgia, where she also earned her B.S. in Environmental Engineering. Katherine consults as a researcher in environmental sustainability focused on material flow systems, citizen science, and marine plastic litter for the Jambeck Research Group and UGA New Materials Institute.

NRRA School Recycling CLUB is pleased to announce that Kat Shayne will have  a special presentation just for Schools regarding progress of cleaning up plastic in the ocean.





We have our dates:  May 20 & 21, 2019

We have our location:  The Double Tree by Hilton Manchester Downtown


10th Anniversary Trivia: It seems appropriate that the traditional gift for the 10th Anniversary is TIN or ALUMINUM, both of which can be recycled infinitely with no loss of quality!
