Join us and Transform the Waste Management Industry through Pioneering Leadership

Registration is now open for WASTECON 2022! Join us in San Diego California December 5-8 for a comprehensive program that addresses transformations, challenges, and opportunities at the industry level, organizational and municipal level, and the individual level.

Here is where leaders in the waste management industry gather to find solutions to the toughest challenges and discover the most promising opportunities. Our hands-on learning experiences and skill-development sessions will support directors and superintendents through to middle manager and operations leads.

This is the 60th year of WASTECON! You’re invited to partake in this anniversary celebration with us in the city where it all began. Register now, you won’t want to miss it!


2022 In-Person Classes are postponed due to COVID-19.

If you held a valid operator certification at the time of the class you were registered for, and you submit a completed renewal application as required in NM Solid Waste Rules, NMAC, your certification will be administratively continued, meaning it will not expire until you complete the required 24 continuing education units (CEUs) and a renewal certification is issued. The application is available HERE.

If you were not registered or placed on a waiting list in 2020 or 2021, please place yourself on a waiting list for 2022 in-person classes to be determined, please register by clicking on the button below. This also can be used by NMED to grant certified operators with administrative continuation due to COVID.
