Michigan Waste and Materials Management Conference


  • Suburban Collection Showplace 46100 Grand River Avenue Novi, MI, 48374 United States (map)

Have you registered yet for the Michigan Waste and Materials Management Conference, taking place December 13-14 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi? This comprehensive 2-day event will:

  • Provide you with training that will help you understand and comply with waste regulations;
  • Help you go beyond compliance and focus on managing materials -  conserving, reusing and recycling them instead of landfilling them; and
  • Provide you with an opportunity to network with consultants, transporters, disposal vendors, and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) staff. 

Join the over 200 people who have already registered to learn about proper waste and material management. Hear about important state-wide regulatory changes, emerging issues, and the practicalities of using unwanted materials as a resource to promote economic vitality, ecological integrity, and an improved quality of life for current and future generations. Take this opportunity to learn about Michigan’s waste regulations and meet one-on-one with DEQ program experts and service providers to get your questions answered.
