If a thriving trade show is an accurate reflection of the industry’s well-being, then waste diversion and reduction is certainly blossoming in a big way here in Canada, with the 15th edition of the upcoming annual Canadian Waste & Recycling Expo (CWRE) in Toronto already being predicted to shatter all previous attendance and exhibitor participation records.

Scheduled to be held at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont., Nov. 14-15, 2012, the country’s premier show for the waste, recycling and public works markets has already received enthusiastic support from all the leading industry associations, according to show organizers Messe Frankfurt, Inc., along with confirmed participation by leading industry players such as Mack Canada, Machinex, Currotto Can, Labrie, Molok North America, DURABAC, Palfinger North America, Deloupe, Fleetmind Solutions and many others.

“It is exciting to have our 15th edition of the Canadian Waste & Recycling Expo being held in Toronto—the city where it all started,” says show manager Arnie Gess, adding she expects more then 200 exhibitors to display their cutting-edge products technologies at the November event.

“The 2012 event is anticipated to being our biggest show ever, following a very successful show in Montreal in 2011,” says Gess, adding that CWRE 2011 in Montreal was completely sold out six weeks before the event.

Focusing on all aspects of the waste and recycling markets—from waste collection and processing to recycling and disposal of plastic, paper, auto, tires, wood, fiber, electronics, etc.—this year’s exhibition will also feature a comprehensive educational component in the form of the concurrently running Canadian Waste Sector Symposium conference.
