2020 CONFERENCE Details

The 2020 Iowa Recycling and Solid Waste Management Conference has been postponed until October 2021. Due to continued concerns for the health and safety of our participants, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors in regard to COVID-19, the Iowa Recycling Association (IRA) and the Iowa Society of Solid Waste Operations (ISOSWO) Boards have both voted to postpone the 2020 conference.
