About Waste and Recycling Expo 2017

Following a small presence in 2016 we are currently planning a group stand and sectoral visit to this exhibition. This follows on from the successful participation at CONEXPO and the continued sectoral development programme for the materials handling sector.

Now in its 20th year the show attracts over 3,000 attendees and 300 exhibitors and is the only show in Canada which services the waste, recycling and public works market.


The cost to companies who take space on the stand is £750 +VAT and for companies participating in the sectoral visit the cost will be £300 +VAT.
