Frequently Asked Questions

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, WasteExpo 2020 has been cancelled. The event will return in 2021 and will take place April 26-29, 2021 in Las Vegas, NV. This is the first time in the events more than 50-year history that it has been forced to cancel the event. WasteExpo experienced strong industry support  and commitment  in the postponement of the event as it moved from May to August; however, the COVID-19 situation worsened nationwide, with New Orleans particularly hard hit. 

We are reimagining WasteExpo digitally through WasteExpo Together Online to bring our audience together. The digital experience will take place September 14-17, 2020 and will offer timely content and a safe place to learn and do business online for personal connection, innovation discovery, product development and more. We will share additional information about the digital experience soon. We thank our community for their ongoing support. Stay safe and we will look forward to seeing you in person next year.
