What to Expect at WasteExpo 2023

From Monday, May 1 to Wednesday, May 3, the WasteExpo conference will feature informative sessions spanning eight separate tracks, including Recycling and Landfills, Waste Tech and Innovation, Ops, Fleet and Safety, Food Recovery, and Organics Management. The Komptech Americas team is looking forward to attending the following educational sessions:

  • Federal Food Loss and Waste Reduction Initiatives

Todd Dunderdale, CCP, will deliver a presentation about creating compost agriculture food production at WasteExpo 2023.

In addition to the tracks mentioned, Komptech America’s Senior Area Sales Manager, Todd Dunderdale, CCP, will deliver a presentation titled “How to Create a Sellable Compost Product for Agriculture Food Production.” Over the past 20 years, Todd has helped implement over 300 equipment solutions into the solid and organics waste market, from industrial waste shredders and screening machines to commercial compost windrow turners and material separation equipment. Todd has witnessed the industry’s evolution first-hand.

Most recently, he has watched compost rapidly gain global acceptance as a proven soil amendment to generate healthier soil, reduce landfill disposal costs and lower pollutants. However, there’s still a long way to go for compost to be considered “standard practice” for large-scale agricultural producers. But why? Join Todd’s presentation to gain insight into this hot topic.

This year at WasteExpo, Komptech Americas will also compete in the “Carts on Display” art competition contest, sponsored by the NWRA’s Women’s Council. Our team decorated a 64-gallon trash cart into something special that promotes the growth of the waste and recycling industry. We had a great time getting crafty together.
