We are working to make this 2013 MAEOE Conference a Waste Neutral event by reducing, diverting and recycling all of the waste produced from this conference. You can help by putting your waste into the appropriate containers. In addition to traditional recycling (paper, plastics, glass, metals) we are also recycling our food waste into compost. Thanks to Waste Neutral for their generous support.
