Welcome to the conference!
On behalf of the Department of Resources
Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle), I am pleased to welcome you to the
2016 Used Oil/HHW Training and Conference at the Sacramento Convention
This year’s conference theme is “Vote for Change.” In this presidential
election year, we hope you will be inspired to take the lead in making
change happen. Household hazardous waste and used oil management
professionals are increasingly seeing changes in the types of waste
streams and the specific issues they encounter. To address these
materials and issues, a shift in thinking needs to occur.
What hasn’t changed is CalRecycle’s longstanding tradition of providing
education, information, and networking opportunities to help manage and
collect waste. The conference training sessions will build your
knowledge base and provide you with the tools to utilize on a daily
basis. They will provide opportunities to address changing priorities
and issues in the waste industry and how to deal with them. Last but not
least, networking and personal interactions with colleagues at the
conference can help you adapt to the changing times and waste streams as
you can learn from their experiences and ideas.
We will continue our sustainability efforts
here at the Sacramento Convention Center, which has a policy in place
for food waste prevention and food rescue.
Thank you again for attending this year’s
conference in Sacramento and being open to change in all its forms. I
appreciate your commitment to make a positive difference for the
